And More London

Here are More London Pictures

Just thought I would attache a picture of our room showing the two tiny beds we had, it was a classy hotel.

This is one of the main streets in Oxford

This is one of the Colleges at Oxford

This is one of the Churches at Oxford

We did stop by to look at Buckingham Palace

We did try to watch the changing of the guard at the Windsor Castle but I was too short to see over everyone so I didn't really see anything.

This is one of the main streets we walked around at night, there were a lot of people.

This was in the area where all of the theaters were.

These are the doors to St. Paul's Cathedral, they were enormous.

A picture inside of St Paul's Cathedral, Doug had to be careful since pictures were not allowed.

This is one of the grave stones in St. Paul's I think it is weird that they have graves under the floor where people walk. I don't really like walking on dead people.

Another one inside St. Paul's (illegal photo)

This is the actual Tower of London Building

This is inside the Westminster Abby (another place you are not supposed to take pictures)

This was the Ceiling in one of the areas at the Westminster Abby, as you can see Doug was trying to look at though he was not taking pictures.

Another photo in Westminster Abby

This was at the Natural Science Museum, we thought is was interesting that they actually had a life sized example of a whale.

This is the Rosetta Stone we saw at the British Museum

That was our trip, we had a really fun time. It was tiring as you can see when went to a lot of places so by the end of the day I was very tired. I have recovered now my body is getting back to the normal schedule.

More London

Here are some more pictures of our trip. Also it turns out that Easter Weekend is not the best time to go to London. I guess everybody in Europe was on there Spring Break and then there was also a Bank Holiday so everywhere we went there were tons of people. We were lucky in that we didn't really have to wait in long lines.
Another Classic Picture
St. Paul's Cathedral

This is at the Tower of London. We did get to see the Crown Jewels. They were really neat since they were the actual Jewels.

This was on our River Boat Ride, It was fun.

This is the London Eye, you can see everything for miles in it when the sky is clear.

This is inside our first trip in the London Eye you can see the capsules we were in. As you can see it was still cloudy so you couldn't see to far.

This was our 2nd Trip (we actually got 2 free tickets from our river boat tour) as you can see the sky was actually blue so you could see alot better.

Me in the London Eye you can see Parliament and Big Ben
More pictures to come

We are back from London, as you can see I am up at 4:30 my body does not like the time changes. It was a fun trip but I am glad to be back. It was cloudy and drizzly for most of the trip we had some blue skies for a 1/2 a day. I do enjoy the sun. I will try to add some more pictures from what Doug took with his phone but here are some.

This is at the Westminster Abby and you will see below there were a lot of people protesting in front of Parliament.

Us in front of Parliament and Big Ben

This is us by the Tower Bridge (I thought is was called the London Bridge but it is actually called the Tower Bridge.

This is at Windsor Castle, Doug doesn't always want to pose for pictures
We had to take one by the Guard

Us at Stonehenge

This is Warwick Castle you can see how many people were there

This is in the stairwell of one of the towers at Warwick very small

This is where Shakespeare was born and grew up

This is only about 1/2 the trip I will post some more tonight.
