We decided to go with the London Duck Tours which are those car things that go on water too? Have you seen them?
I would highly recommend them if you are ever on this side of the pond- they were very fun and gave a great view of London from land and river.
These vessels were originally used by the military for D-day, which I found interesting.
Isaac was a bit too tired to find anything interesting
some serious barbed wire around Buckingham Palace
The Queen’s stables
(this seems to be Joseph’s new signature pose.)
(This was right when we hit the water)
Isaac says, “A truck that also becomes a boat and is roaring on the Thames in London? SNOOZER!”
They told us to be sure not to touch the river and then touch our mouths- which means that Joseph immediately touched the river and then was worried that he might touch his mouth.
He also spit into the river, right in front of Parliament. Oh, the things that children can add to a vacation!!
After the tour was over, we walked around the Riverfront for a while.
This ferris wheel type thing is called the London Eye. You stand in the glass enclosure and you can take pictures of London. Unfortunately it also goes very slowly (an average ride they told us was about 40 minutes) and once you start you can’t get off… so we are going to skip it this visit.
We grabbed some dinner at a restaurant
Joseph ate an entire huge bowl of noodles, Isaac learned how to blow bubbles in his milk,
and this is Isaac’s face when he stands up in the high chair- naughty boy!
Big Ben was by far my favorite thing to see (although Big Ben is actually the name of the clock bell, not the clock itself!) as evidenced by my 10000 pictures of it on my camera.
We even got to hear it gong a few times (I can’t figure out how to upload the video on the laptop- but I will ask Brian!)
That’s all for now folks- Cheers!
