We spent our last day in London at the Tower of London. We had so much fun there and enjoyed the Beef Eater tour. We loved exploring on our own as well. Kenzie loved seeing the Crown Jewels. They were amazing and the history was amazing. Afterward, we walked the famous bridge and then had lunch. We had traditional mash and a cheese and onion filled pie.
The stories of all the be-headings that happened here were crazy!
We were very interested in the carvings in the walls that were left by former prisoners.
This marks the spot were some of the most famous people were beheaded. Here, Ann Boleyn was beheaded.
I love this picture! It is so English!
One of the torture devices. Stretching machine.
At 4 o'clock we went back to the Queen's Horses Gate to watch the dismounting ceremony. It was really neat. I was disappointed in the crowd as they were loud and disrespectful to the solders. It made me feel badly. I was glad to know that those being disrespectful were not from my country.
The loved the ceremony.
After that, we headed over to St. Paul's. I really wanted to go up into the dome, but when we got there they were having a special concert, so the dome was closed. We were able to go in though and hear the concert. It was amazing. We briefly walked around the church afterward. It was huge! We took our pictures on the famous steps from Mary Poppins and walked through the shops near by. We also grabbed dinner at Hummas Bros. It was yummy!
When I was in London for school in 1989, we spent 6 weeks in London. I loved seeing St Paul's again and my time in London was wonderful and brought so many memories back. I will say that London was a lot more crowded than it was all those years ago. I am so glad I got to share this trip with McKenzie.
Our last day selfie. Man, we look a like.
Lunch! We also fan back to St. Martin's in the Field and got a serving of crumble and clotted cream! We had to have one for the road. I didn't get a picture of dinner from Hummas Bros. We went to bed by 8 as our car was picking us up at 3:30 am. Kenzie slept well, but I didn't sleep a wink.
We were ready to see our family, but we had a trip of a lifetime! I was so glad to get to spend this time with Kenzie. It was a great experience to share.
