The Quick Hello

After a relatively painless flight, there we were in London.  We had to wait a long, long, long, painfully long time for Lucy to get cleared.  She does look like the kind of shifty character that would try to smuggle balloons of heroin in her rectum, so I guess it was justified.

Nothing To See Here..

We arrived at our new temporary home in the middle of a grey, cold, rainy day.  It wasn’t quite the grand palace depicted on the website:

But it will do.

We walked around Islington and found a pub we thought was from the 1700s but which I recently discovered was opened in 2005.

We also discovered a canal in the middle of the town, which was a nice little surprise.

Surprise! Here’s a Canal.

Then we spent a week being tourists. Each event deserves it’s own little post, but here are some highlights:

Bumper Cars. (FYI, they had already stopped. We may be lax parents, but we aren’t that bad).
