ENGLAND TRIP - DAY 1, Part 1

Here's the first set of pictures from our trip to England. We stayed west of Parliament, about a 10 minute walk from it, so in the 5 days we were in London we had to walk by it and Big Ben. It was really cool.
THERE ARE TWO SHORT VIDEOS HERE, TOO: One outside of Parliament, and the other in Trafalagar Square. I tried to make them short (under 45 seconds each), entertaining and sometimes goofy.
  Speaking of cool, the average high was between 45 and 55F during our stay. It's supposed to be near 61F, but never got there. It was the coolest early May since records began in 1659.
  TOMORROW: Our FIRST Ghost Encounters (and there was at least ONE EVERY DAY!)


Tom and Rob in front of a British phone booth- but someone peed in it, or we would've posed inside it!
Tom at the Royal Mews - stables for the Queen's horses.
St. Martin in the Fields Church-we briefly  listened to a free concert.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
