Crossing The Pond

It occurred to me that I've posted a few pictures of Paris, but none of London, which was my favorite place. Let's rectify that now shall we?

This bad boy is the London Eye. It's basically a REALLY big ferris wheel that you stand in and shows you London from heights way too high for me to be comfortable with. An interesting thing about the Eye, unless someone is getting on that is disabled, it NEVER STOPS. I was only a little disconcerted about that, until I realize that the Eye is built coming out of the Thames River. That's when full panic set in. I'm an okay swimmer, but judging by the looks of the river, I don't think I would have stood a chance if I'd gone for a swim. :) Luckily, there were no mishaps as I took a deep breath and jumped, literally, for my life. Although, I'm pretty sure I heard a chuckle from one of the "guards" that was there to "ensure my safety". Apparently I looked as scared as I felt...
















Claustrophobic
and afraid of heights. Good Tia, really good....

You are so brave. Was it like getting onto a ginormous escalator? I don't even like the kind of tall one at Lagoon so I'm super impressed with you. I was bummed I didn't get to chat with you a church today. Thanks for subbing for me last week. Did you change your hair color? Did you have your niece with you? From far away I wasn't sure if it was you or not. Anyway, talk to you later.

She's seen London, She's seen France...

Nevermind. I always hated that little rhyme.

Keep posting pics! We're loving it!
