Sunday Roast

We dropped into the Greenwich Union Pub and had some really amazing roasts (chicken for me, beef for Dick).

Dick also discovered a local brewery, "Meantime" whose beers are served here, which he loved.

Visiting Greenwich

We are at the Prime Meridian of the World!!

Good Morning, London!!

We're taking a boat along the Thames to Greenwich.

Lunch with Clay and Michael in London!!

How utterly delightful to meet up with our neighbors from San Francisco, Clay and Michael, while we are all in London at the same time! Clay and I only realized a couple of days ago that we'd be overlapping.

Ironically, between all of our busy schedules, we haven't even had a chance to visit each other in San Francisco yet.

Thank you, Clay and Michael, for squeezing us into your schedule, and for treating us to a delicious lunch!!

Paddington Bear!!

Just pulled into Paddington Station (on the Heathrow Express) and met up with my little buddy, Paddington! :)

London from Above

We flew into London around 7:00am. As we were arriving, our captain told us that we were in a holding pattern and that we needed to circle for an extra five minutes. We were super lucky, as it's a clear morning, and we sat on the side of the plane with an amazing view of Central London!!

Hello, Dreamliner!!

We're off to London!!

We're flying on a Boeing Dreamliner for the first time! We're very excited. Dick has been wanting to fly on one of these planes since they first came out a couple of years ago. We've been looking forward to this trip since we planned it back in the Fall.

See you on the other side of the pond!

Today's Birthday Meals!!

What a lucky girl I am!! Dick treated me to two amazing meals for my Birthday today!!

For lunch, we went to Burma Super Star for their incredible tea leaf salad and soup.

For dinner, we went to L'Ardoise, our favorite French Bistro in SF. As luck would have it, we saw Andrew and Barry dining there, too!!

Two really delicious and special meals in one day. What a nice Birthday!

Dinner at Barry & Andrew's!!

Our dear friends, Barry and Andrew had us over for an extraordinary meal tonight. A delicious salad, the most incredible cioppino we've ever had, and an equally amazing home made lemon tart!! Barry, you outdid yourself!!

We had the most fun conversations that lasted through the night.

Kimi had gifted me a pair of Moomin-print lounge pants as an early birthday gift yesterday. I knew Andrew is a HUGE Moomin fan, so I wore them to his place tonight. He was shocked to see them, and they were a huge hit! Poor Dick had no idea what was happening, so Andrew had to explain the Moomins to him.

Good times.

Thank you, Barry & Andrew!!! xo
