OMG I ate a lot!



Fancy tea with pastries and little sandwiches with the crusts cut off and clotted cream. (Clotted cream is amazing btw, my advice is just to not even go there.)



The food halls at Harrods are amazing as well. I cannot even begin to describe the yummy things on sale. We mostly bought tea as gifts, and some biscuits. And a sandwich which we split, so I thought we were pretty restrained, all things considered.

I don't have pictures of all of the beer and fish and chips and other lovely things we ate, but we did eat a lot.

I am going to guess though, that after a day or two to purge my body of all of the salt from eating restaurant food, that my weight will not have gone up more than a pound, and it might even be the same. Because all we did was walk. I wish I had a fitbit or a pedometer, because I would love to see how many stairs we climbed every day. The day we went to the Tower of London had to be 400+, and that is not even counting the stairs in the Tube stations. I counted two hours of walking a day, but the reality is that we were probably walking more like 3-4. And even though we splurged on a lot of meals, we frequently split things, one pastry between the two of us, or one order of fish and chips

My legs felt great though, once I got out the yoga strap at night and stretched them, and my knee, which I was kind of worried about at the beginning of the trip, feels great. It didn't hurt at all, and the little twinges I was having whenever I went down stairs have stopped. I was really proud of my mom, who is 75 and not in poor physical condition certainly, but not at the top of her game either. She wanted to keep going and do everything, even though she was clearly tired.

Here are some random photos from the trip. It was super cold, so I did not have the camera out as much as I would have liked. We were in London for four days and then spent some time in Bath and Stratford upon Avon. I loved Bath, which is one of the prettiest places I have ever been, but the driving there almost did me in. It was terrifying. Stratford was also lovely, and we got to see Hamlet at the Royal Shakespeare Company!

    I absolutely loved London! We stayed at the Codogan where I had my first and only high tea. We also did a lot of walking - in fact, we pretty much walked everywhere while we were there.
