eyes on London

Oliver enjoys the London Eye capsule
Oliver made his first trip to central London today, including a visit to London Eye. Click the photo to go to Flickr and see a few more photos of Oliver in the capsule. I was worried that he might be afraid but I could not have been more wrong.

We'd planned to go to London Zoo but were detoured into shopping instead, which probably does not come as much of a surprise. Fortnum & Mason, La Maison du Chocolat, the Apple Store on Regent Street (of course) and Hamley's were all visited. Found a terrific, and LARGE, wooden pillar box at Fortnum's. Should make a fine addition to Oliver's new room. Shipping it cost a fortune but at least we don't have to wrangle it on the planes. I should have taken a picture but I will try to remember to do so when it catches up with us in Pittsburgh.

Transportation from where we are staying in Surrey to the city is very easy. We are a five minute walk to the station where we catch a train to Waterloo. It was very dark when we came home as street lights are non-existent and it gets dark even earlier here than in Pittsburgh, but we found our way.

Rumor has it the floor in the kitchen at the new house goes down tomorrow, and the bathroom demolition will occur later in the week. Wonder what they are going to do until January when the cabinets arrive....
