My trip to England and Paris
I flew to England for two weeks to visit with Martin, Heather and Evie for Evie's second birthday. Harry didn't join me this trip and I really missed him but I had a wonderful trip. Evie had a party in a park with her friends and their parents, we went into London a few days and saw huge dinosaurs at the museum. We picked pumpkins at the farm and then painted them. Did a lot of walking around town, too. I also saw the house Martin and Heather are thinking of buying, which is very nice. Went to Evie's gymnastics class with her, sunned at West Withering Beach (yes, it's sunny and 80 degrees!) and went to Hever Castle, where Ann Bolyn was raised.
For a special treat for Heather's upcoming birthday Martin gave her (and me) a trip to Paris for two days and one night. We went on the Eurostar through the chunnel, which only takes 2-1/2 hours) and then the Metro right to our hotel in the middle of Paris. Saw a few sights the first day and walked around and ate crepes that night. The next day we took a bus tour which took us all around the city where we could stop and get off and on whenever we wanted. Had a wonderful day. Left about 5PM for the trip back to London and got back about 9. Heather had parked her car at Ithaca so it was only one stop on the tube and then the drive back to her house. Great trip!!!
