Crash & Burn and the Recovery

Westminister AbbeyYesterday I crashed. I got up – late – and blearily made my way to the breathtakingly gorgeous Westminster Abbey. I toured and I enjoyed, but I was so tired I’m sure I missed a bunch. I came back to my hotel after the tour and promptly passed out on the bed, sleeping from 3pm to 7pm. I got up, ate dinner, came back to the hotel, called my family to let them know I still lived (sort of) and went right back to bed.
Today I woke up much refreshed and ready to start touring again! This morning I ran off and spent a lovely couple of hours wandering around Hyde Park. It was particularly interesting to me, since I read so many romances set in the 18th & 19th century in London – and they are always riding through Hyde Park, or walking along the Serpentine Lake. I didn’t get on a horse (though it was available), nor did I take a boat out on the lake (though if my son had been with me, I would have!), but I did get some beautiful views (and a few nice shots) of the park as I wandered aimlessly along.

Tonight, I go on a walking tour of Jack the Ripper’s old haunts – of course, they don’t offer these during the daytime (I checked), so I’ll be completely freaked out on my last night in London. Oh well…
I don’t know if I’ll get my pictures from the tour uploaded tonight – I’m going to try to get everything pretty much packed up this afternoon and ready for me to head out of here at 6:30am tomorrow morning (that’s 12:30am CST…). I’ll probably keep my laptop out until I go to bed – I’ll have to Skype everyone when I get back and make sure that my getting back home arrangements are set up!
This will undoubtably be my last post of the trip, however, so I’ll say goodbye now and I’ll see you all when I get home!
