Day Five: London Again

Whoo-whee, I am way behind.  We've already been in Paris for a day and a half, and I still haven't posted my last London pictures.  So here are a few...

The Old Borough Market:

Yes, it's real.

Miss Chef buys lunch.

Then a short walk over to the Globe Theatre.  We had tickets to see All's Well That Ends Well.

It was amazing being in such a faifthful reproduction of a 500-year old theater, with the beautiful wood and painted stage around us.  Yes, those people stood for 2+ hours, through a rain shower and all.  The performance was wonderful, the actors excellent.  This is not a cheesy money-making scheme, this is a great way to fully appreciate Shakespeare's work.

Afterwards we walked across the Millenium Bridge--the one destroyed in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Princ--to St. Paul's Cathedral.

There was a service in progress, so we couldn't do the full tour, but it was beautiful to be in there with the music echoing in the nave.  After a quick look inside, we hopped a bus to Fortnum & Mason, where we got rid of a few pounds on luxury foods.  Mustards, chocolate, wild strawberry jams....and we haven't had a chance yet to taste any of it!

One of the window's like the Sak's of food!

Look kids, Big Ben...


...and a panaroma of the Thames with the London Eye.

There.  Now, I have to get ready to go; we've got an appointment at the Eiffel Tower this morning.  Ta-ta for now!


  1. Thank you for the updates.....we are going to London in Sept. and love watching what you are seeing...smiles.

  2. I too am lovin' the photos! Minus the pig.

  3. Garret, don't be dissin' on my pig head.

  4. I'll have one of each of the pastries, please.

  5. I love London. Out of all of that, Don's favorite would've been the duck sandwich. ;)

  6. Ooh! The bread! The Pork! The Duck sandwiches! The window food displays. Mmmm! I can always count on getting some food eye candy coming over here!
