Here we are in London!

Day One....
London Eye River Cruise and London Eye! Lots of fun...although rather cold! First off we did the River Cruise...of course you have to sit on the open roof of the boat...otherwise how do you see everything and take great pictures! Crikey, it was cold up there, but the staff brought us a glass of warm mulled wine and that hit the spot! Good tourist information about all the different bridges, buildings and monuments along the River Thames...(and I still can't remember how to say the Thames properly!) We caught up with Kylie, Rob and Oliver for lunch, and then did a walking tour around London, Trafalgar Square, Oxford Street, the big Toy store in London, Hamleys...all 6 floors of everything you could possibly find! We were all tired after a long day of touring. Also, the Xmas sales had begun, so there were heaps of people out and about....all a bit crowded to really have a proper look around!

Finally catching up on my blog reading and your trips over the last wee while - just finished reading about your trip to London, it sounds like you had a blast! Love the London fire story - his teacher and kids are going to love seeing his certificate for climbing up the monument :) And you're right, Brighton's certainly a beach, but not in the same league as Rosebud ;)
