London - Day 2

Apparently...we went a little crazy on day 1... and tried to see everything.

But of course, that isn't possible. 2 was a little more mellow.

We started off at Buckingham Palace.

I just love all the details on the palace. Every gate, every knob, everything is just amazing.

I was so impressed with the was one of my favorite places we visited. I so wished we could have taken photos inside.

One of my favorite things in the castle was Kate Middleton's wedding dress...and it shocks me how much I loved being able to see it.

It was just beautiful and possibly the most gorgeous dress I have ever seen. It was so much more impressive in person than it seemed on TV. All the work that went into it...was fantastic.

The palace was so fantastic. We even had a treat in the cafe.

After the palace we went to the Royal Mews -- where they maintain the coaches.

My other surprise in London was how much I loved riding the buses. I know i'm a big geek...but I just loved riding on the 2nd level in the front seat. Troy thought I was hilarious.

Shopping at Harrods was another real treat. Now that is a department store. The chocolate section was fantastic. FANTASTIC!!

And what trip to London would be complete without a visit to Platform 9 3/4?

And Picadilly? Not as impressive as I thought it would be. Sort of NY, lite. But...I was there.

Finally capping off the day with a ride in the tube (subway).
