Home Sweet Home

Here we are... back in the states and I finally was able to upload the last 600 of my pictures (yay!) On my ten hour flight where I couldn't seem to get any sleep I calculated my totals on pictures and I have 4,227 to sift through. There were about 50 that I wanted to share from the last week in England... so excuse the long post!










These were taken at the Natural History Museum. We had fun going around seeing the exhibits, although I'm pretty sure we felt like we were 10.




Stratford Upon Avon. Here's where Shakespeare was born. Jackie's standing in front of the home he was born in.



Yes... they still have the coolest payphones ever.



Never seen so many wild swans. They went from group to group looking for handfuls of bread. We didn't have any.



Buckingham Palace. Apparently the flag means the queen is in. Don't know if that was the case or not.



We went to the gardens at Hyde Park and guess what they had.... ROSES! And other things too. Beautiful!



AND they have this tree that has branches growing upside down. It was like going inside Peter Pan's hideout.



Couldn't take pictures in the National Gallery, but Trafalgar Square was open game! I love the ship in a bottle!



Jackie had saved a voucher for afternoon tea at a rather nice cafe. It was quite fun and I feel very English after having done this. It's official!



We went out and waited for the sun to go down to get some night shots. Oh yeah... night shots make me happy!


London Tower had exhibits on Royal Armor. I love the axe and block... Off with their heads!


This is a mask that gossips were forced to wear as punishment.



We saw several beefeaters, but I liked this one. The strong, silent type.



Millenium Bridge and the Globe theatre. We went to see Henry IV part 1. FABULOUS! You haven't seen Shakespeare until you've seen it in the Globe!

Now that I'm back and working to get some energy back, I know I'll miss Europe. But someday I'll be back! The bug has bitten and it's not going to go away! Be on the lookout for some state-side travels and one day... one day I'll be back Europe! That's a promise!
