The other day, I mentioned that Coach and I had taken a little trip across the pond for our summer vacation. I haven’t posted a Wanderlust Wednesday for quite awhile, so today I thought I would share a few of my favorite pics with you! Our first stop, glorious London.

London from The Tower Bridge 2 PMThe photos speak for themselves. Home of the Queen of England, Buckingham Palace.

London Buckingham Palace Gates SunsetIt wasn’t tucked away in some remote, inaccessible part of town. (although it did have these rather large gates to keep intruders out)

Buckingham Palace Gates at SunsetNope, it’s right smack dab in the middle of London, where tourists flock daily to view the changing of the guard.

London Changing of the Guard PMPainting the streets to ensure that pedestrians don’t step off the curb into oncoming traffic! (OK, Coach only had to pull me back once, maybe twice from certain peril)

London Street Sign Look Right PMPortobello Road Market. Shops, restaurants and antiques and collectibles for miles.

London Portobello Road PMTower of London. Quite a view of the River Thames from the Tower Bridge.

London from the Tower Bridge PMStunning architecture.

London Tower BridgeBeheadings, murders, assassinations and such.

Greenwich, England. Greenwich mean time is the clock that sets the world’s timetable.

Greenwich Mean Time Greenwich EnglandIf you stand on each side of this one thin metal line, you are in both the Eastern and Western Hemisphere. Even in the rain.

Greenwich England Prime Meridien PMAdmiral Hardy’s Pub in Greenwich. Our first of many, many pub stops to quench our thirst, as it was quite unseasonably warm for summer in London.

London Pub Bulmers Pear Cider PMCoach discovered Pear Cider and Crabbie’s Ginger Beer,

London Crabbies Ginger Beerand we watched a game of cricket on the telly. I am certain that our puzzlement about the game of cricket is only matched by Europeans’ confusion regarding American baseball.

The London Eye. Spectacular. A gigantic ferris wheel built for the Millenium Celebration with the intent to tear it down once it ended, but it became so popular that it remains today as one of London’s most-visited attractions.

London Red Phone Booths PMor visiting the legendary Harrods. It is not a store, it’s an experience. Copper dome lighting display.

Let It Be Concert in LondonI discovered this lighted sign in a window in Trafalgar Square. I think about the message quite often, especially when making a life choice that could go either way. Traditionally I err on the side of caution, but lately I’ve been trying to change just a bit and:
