Day 2 of our trip and the tour begins. Today we traveled around the beautiful city of London getting to see a lot of the major sites.

As you can see in the photo above, the city (and we later saw much of England), is still decorated from celebrating the Queen’s Jubilee!

What an exciting time to visit! And, of course, the trip wouldn’t be complete without a stop at Buckingham palace.

And then seeing the changing of the guard:

Of course, Pops couldn’t resist joining in the marching!

Then, we were off to make a stop at Westminster Abbey.

where we also caught views of Big Ben, the London Eye, and

the Houses of Parliament.

I just love all the details built into these old stone buildings.

Simply Stunning!!

Next, we head over to the Tower of London – where we catch a view of the Tower Bridge (if you look close, you can see the 5 Olympic rings tucked under the upper part of the bridge where they’ll be lowered for view when the Olympics start):

and the Tower itself where we’ll get a chance to also see the Crown Jewels.

Oooh and also see those eerie ravens that must always be there (giving the city good luck).

Final stop of this touring day is St. Paul’s Cathedral – which is truly magnificent.

    Gorgeous! I had no idea trombones were involved in the changing of the guard. Made me smile. I am so envious! Some day I’ll get there, but until then, at least I have your pics to drool over. :)
