Friday June 21, 2002 London

From Westminster Abbey, we walk to Trafalgar Square (Where we watch a pick up soccer game.),

We then walk to St. James Park, Buckingham Palace, Green Park, Hyde Park Corner, and Harrod's (where Scotty looks for an England soccer jersey and enjoys brousing in the Toy Kingdom). Our supper is sandwiches and drinks purchased in Harrod's Food Hall and eaten on some townhouse steps nearby.

As we head toward the Tube, we sadly bid farewell to London for this trip. We find London an exciting place to visit, and hope to visit again in the future.

At our Ealing Guest House, Dan spends time writing out, in my travel notebook, directions for our trip to Bristol. Every night (or the next morning before we leave our B & B), Dan writes out roads to take, names of towns we'll pass so we know we're on the right road. This is a great help for navigators Jan, Mary Jane, and Scotty!
