london part one - hello rain8/20/2012
The last stop from our summer trip is finally upon us! After spending two glorious weeks on Scandinavian waters, we made our way back to England and spent a few days in London. Truthfully I was quite ready to go home, having felt that my vacation was complete, but we were meeting Donald's sister who was also in town. I had visited London before and experienced the obligatory sights, so this time I decided to escape the commotion by visiting Hampton Court. I wandered through the grounds, even as the rain threatened from above.
What would an excursion be without delicious food? The cafe on the grounds was lovely, or at least it satiated our hearty appetites. All that walking really does make you exhausted and hungry. Even though we were in England, we couldn't quite let go of Scandinavia yet and had to eat some more smoked salmon. We ate so much more on our trip and even stopped at Wimbledon, which I'll share in part two! x
