London- Day 3- May 15th

It's overwhelming how behind I am! 4 months now! 3 days down- 12 to go for Europe!

We started out Sunday May 15th going to the Peckham ward in London.

^ It was very neat to visit our church in another country. Funny how at home we feel there though.
^ One of the fun things to see on the ground in London since traffic is switched.

After church, we changed and headed to made up Platform 9 3/4 at King's Cross.

Ed decided to take some photos of the tracks
^And in turn got yelled at by the train conductor saying, "Cheers mate, if you do that again you'll be out of the station!" :)

Next we headed to the British Library, one of Maren's favorites. At first I was thinking it might not be very interesting, but indeed turned out to be really neat! There were writings in so many languages! Beatles lyrics and other musical notes, etc. Very cool.

St. Pancras Station

^We had lunch at a suggested Pub and all decided pub food is just average.

Then off to the British Museum. Neato!

We loved having a London Pass and riding double decker busses everywhere.

^We saw lots of silly street performers on our walk to the London Eye- one of the attractions listed as part of the London Pass. To our dismay- this was not true- so we went to dinner instead...

Where? Garfunkels. It was yummy!! It was suggested by a friend for the yummy waffle dessert, but the food was delicious too!
^Some kind of sheppards pie type thing...
^Delicious custard, rum cake or other...
^ And the waffle dessert itself! Waffle topped with ice cream, toffee and syrup. MMMM!
We were all quite full after eating the deliciousness!

^Tears of joy being shed after dinner. Cute face Mare!

We had some time to kill before it got dark( the boys wanted some photos), so we took bus 91 to Crouch and back. Took a little snooze and ate some foreign-ish candy. ;)

Then when the lights went out, the boys shot away...

^...while Maren and I froze!

The said night shots: Pretty cool guys!!
^London Eye
^Big Ben

^A smoochy from my love...

And in the end since we were out so late, we sprinted our hinneys to the last DLR train to run for the night to get us back to our hotel. Very painful whilst holding a much needed pee by all! ;)
