In keeping with the previous post, we had a super time a couple of weeks ago with friends from Waxahachie/Midlothian who are living in Prague and came for a quick UK Invasion visit. Being the second annual Christmas Travel Spectacular (as we were in Prague for the holidays last year), Larry and Jackie (a.k.a. Prague-a-tholians - a mix between Prague and Midlothian where they are living today/hail from originally, respectively) arrived in London on a rainy weekend. We even took in Kew Gardens during the weekend, and "thah the-ah-tah" ...heck, a little rain never stopped anyone.
And how about that Texas BBQ????
A soggy but lovely Kew Gardens: First, the Palm Houses.
A view of one of the Palm Houses from the Tree-top walkway.
Larry opts out of the tree-top walk...too high.
Japanese Gardens in Kew Gardens. OK, so I can't resist the "Leaning Pisa" sight-gag.
Larry, in a more "appropriate" shot of the Japanese Pagoda....
Holly in the Holly Walk in Kew Gardens. Clever, huh?
We also took in a trip to the British Museum ..."it indeed had not lost its charm".
And finally, the "creme-de-la-creme", the first Advent Sunday service at St. Paul's Cathedral. If angels in heaven sing anything like this, man...what a treat we have waiting for us.
