|... snack time, a twin ice-cream cone ...|
the medal around Duncan's neck?
...a prize for answering questions in Sea World ...
I have not.
Today's trip was engineered by him so that I could see the fabulous array of fish there.
I have crossed the Hungerford Bridge and been to St. Albert Hall along the embankment, but I have never walked in this direction before, past the buskers, the musicians, and the hawkers of freshly roasted almonds.
|... a merry-go-round for a less rainy day ...|
Rebecca had purchased our tickets to get to SeaWorld on-line.
Duncan and his friend, Ben, had stood in a line-up for an hour to get tickets and still they had moved only a partial distance toward the ticket wicket.
Rebecca purchased our tickets, which were safely in my back pocket and we whisked through the priority ticket line -- that might be the best thing that happened to me all day.
Well, that really wasn't the best thing, because you can see by the pictures here, that there were 20 best things that happened today. Yes, every day, the best day ever.
|...the London Eye hasn't quit moving since its inception...|
For example, along this touristy strip is a large MacDonalds -- one that spills down to the basement and out onto the patio.
|... off my feet at last ... so much walking even I need orthodics ...|
| ...Big Ben and the Parliament Buildings in the background ...|
...cheeky pigeons in the foreground ...
... MacDonalds behind us ...
