Around London

This is the first of many posts from our August trip to the UK. I'll do the photos a bit at a time -- as I find the time. This first batch was taken around London on our first couple of days back.

Every day into the city started with the obligatory wait at the Berrylands rail station (next to Nic's parents house). Had to capture a shot of the boys here.

The boys at another railway station. Waiting to head to the Greenwich Observatory. Where I admit to taking absolutely no photos because the place was heaving and it was all I could do to push through the crowds and keep Kel in sight. So, imagine that after this, we spent the morning at the Observatory.

Next stop, per Kel's request, was over the the Houses of Parliament and his favourite clock.

The next day we visited the Princess Diana Memorial Playground in Kensington Gardens. Spent most of the day here. Got a few photos, but mainly enjoyed the relaxation. After the playground, we went to the Natural History Museum. I think. It was so crowded that I'm not sure we actually saw anything! So, again, no photos there. Don't worry, as we get out of the city later in the trip, there are more photos -- but London in August is insanity.

Some random around town shots. St Paul's as seen from the Millennium Bridge.

The Eye.

Random street entertainer.

Buckingham Palace as seen from St James Park.
