Okay, onto the London Eye! It was a great day for enjoying London from this vantage point.
Got our tickets, got in line, got in our capsule for the half hour ride around. The kids were stoked!
We took a river cruise from here back towards the Tower of London and enjoyed some more great views.
Once here, Cory donned his souvenir--a Henry VIII style hat.
The Best Laid Plans of Mice and Men...
Here's where things got a little off track for us. We had hoped to use our Hop On Hop Off Bus plan to get towards Shakespeare's Globe Theater and eventually to Hyde Park. Unfortunately for us, there was some sort of rerouting due to traffic issues, and our detour took us way longer than expected. We stopped at Buckingham Palace as planned, but by that time we were all a little worn out.
Lucy had asked all weekend if she would get to see the queen. Looks like the answer is yes!
