We’re back!!

We took TONS of pictures, and saw so many wonderful things. We had such a great time; I’m ready to move 😉 I absolutely loved it in England, but it’s so expensive, so it won’t be happening any time soon LOL. Knitting wise, I did stop at a John Lewis store, and I snagged some Rowan yarn. I love that they have a huge craft section in a regular department store. I also was able to finish my socks there, which is a great thing since I ran out of clean ones over there! Had no problem carrying my knitting on board on the way over and on the way back.

Both Jason and I absolutely fell in love with the tube (subway) in London. I wish they had such a great service here like that. We took it everywhere in London; it was fantastic. I also got hooked by the Brit soap operas and Project Catwalk (their version of Project Runway)– I already miss them! Ugh; I’m ready to go back already!

On to some pictures! These are just a few– the grand total was 353!

This is one of the guards at Buckingham Palace. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to see the changing of the guard as it was canceled due to rain:

We also saw the green where many people were beheaded at the Tower of London including a few Tudors (Tudor is my maiden name–Henry VIII was also a Tudor!):

Here is West Minster Abbey: It was absolutely beautiful, but you couldn’t take pictures inside.
