Pictures from London
I am fascinated with mini cars. Here was the first one I spotted. So cute!
Jason and I in front of the Pampered Chef tour bus, this is the bus that picked us up from the airport and then the same bus took us for a London City tour that afternoon. We were so tired that day since we had been up all night long and then it was daytime when we got to London. The time change was hard on us, but we did well.
I climbed up on this huge Lion Statue at the National Gallery. I thought it would be easy to get up there on that Lion since there were literally hundreds of children everywhere climbing up on him getting their pictures done so I tried to climb up. Not only did I have to get a boost up there, but then I barely got my leg over the hip of the lion and was scared to death to move forward to his waist so I stayed there. Jason was laughing at me.
At Stonehenge at Salisbury, England. It was super cold that day, wishing I had my winter coat. The wind was blowing bad, but it was nice and sunny and absolutely gorgeous. That same day we visited Amesbury, Castle Combe, Lacock, and Bath. In Castle Combe a movie was being filmed. It is a remake of the "Wolfman" with Anthony Hopkins and Benicio Del Torres.
The Tower bridge. This is one of my favorite pictures, one that I will have printed and put in our London frame.
Jason sitting in one of the rocks at Amesbury. This particular rock was called "Devil's Chair"
Look how the mini car parked. Too funny. This picture was taken on Portabello Rd. The famous Rd. from the Disney movie "Bedknobs and Broomsticks". Portabello Rd. to this day is still a market place, no singing and dancing took place like in the movie, but lots and lots of markets were there, it was a very fun place to shop. I found some antique toy soldiers for the boys and other fun stuff.
On the set of the "Wolfman" movie in Castle Combe, England. Too bad Anthony Hopkins wasn't there that day.
