London day trip!

Well, we went down to London on the train
We had sushi at the station when we got there,
And then went to the newly refurbished London Aquarium!
While I don't want to appear jaded in any way, their new queuing system has to be experienced to be believed. How is it possible to que for 45 minutes, moving almost continually, always in sight of the ticket desk; yet each corner you round there is yet more que ahead! Truly a miracle of modern engineering! I would urge you to go for the queing system alone!
Of course, there are also lots of lovley fish!
Guy brought his scooter, naturally!
This is the shark walk where you get to walk on glass panels over some of the tanks.
Which really made me want to go diving again!
Outside by Westminster Bridge
Looking across to the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben
Then we went to pick up Auntie Suzy
And take her out for an early dinner!
A good time was had by all!

That aquarium looks like fun! We debated making a 3 hour drive to see one last week, but decided against it...

And this post reminds me that we still haven't posted our London photos from back in January. I need to get back to that!
