Our Fourth Day in London

July 28, 2014

So our fourth day in London was spent walking again. We walked all the way to Covent Garden, and I just couldn’t help but smile when we went in and saw this …

The vibe—the crowd, the pigeons, the music, the chattering in the background, the sun shining in, the skylight itself, the architecture, the boutiques, the cafés on the lower level, the warmth, the happy and relaxing atmosphere—was heartwarming. (This clip should give you a feel of it.)

Behind the York Watergate (the arch), you’ll find one of the coolest. places. ever. In terms of concept anyway.

During dinner, we decided to watch The Dawn of the Planet of the Apes to give us something to do to force ourselves to stay up late. (We’ve been going to bed really early and have been waking up before 7 am every morning!) When we were five minutes away from the cinema, we spotted a huge sign that read GHOST STORIES, and I could just tell by BZ’s smile that we were dumping the movie for the horror play. We hurried in, got tickets, and sat and nervously waited for it to start …

Although it wasn’t as horrifying as it was worked out to be, we left the theater all smiles. My overall impression of the entire experience was: Brilliant. ♥
