Londres Swim Meet

What a terrific time. Ryan Air is slow but gets us to our destination. We did London in a day, whirlwind... Big Bus Tours, Buckingham Palace, London Eye, Tower of London, Queens Jewels, Sherlock Holmes store, Beatles store - plane, bus, train, ferry, taxi, tube (Underground) all in a weekend. Crazy fun. We saw the musical Wicked, still pondering some of it's message; but thoroughly enjoyed the music, sets and costumes. Jersey Boys is the next musical I'd like to see. NJM LOVED Abbey Road. I was over-joyed to see that he is not the only crazy Beatles fan; many others were taking their shoes off for pictures there too. Abi enjoyed the London Eye scenery. We saw a couple get engaged, with champagne being served, in the pod next to us while riding high in the sky. What an idea! We hope to do some museums & other cathedrals next visit. We went to Lakenheath AFB for our swim meet and brought home 2 4th place ribbons in the 100 meter freestyle. Go swimmers! We finished off the weekend with a visit to a cathedral at Bury St. Edmunds and lunch at the Queen's Head pub for fish & chips. Wonderful trip. Cheerio!
