Anyhow, I slept well for the first time since I've been here. I went to bed at about 1:00, and woke up at 8:00....went downstairs, had breakfast, and came back up to get ready to conquer the day! I decided since it was so nice outside, that I would take my book and head over to Regent's Park for a relaxing afternoon in the sun. Umm, relaxing it was not...but that's just because there was SO much I wanted to do and see.
Once I got there, I went immediately to the Queen Mary Gardens, which were beautiful. There were lots of interesting flowers, and tons and tons of roses! Many different kinds too...I think I read somewhere that there are over 400 different kinds there.
After exiting the gardens, I decided to head up to the zoo which is also in the park, which was about a fifteen minute walk or so (yeah, the park is that big). Along the way I saw some pretty things.
To be honest, the zoo was a bit underwhelming for me. I'm still glad I went, but I think the Detroit Zoo is better!
Then I went up to Primrose Hill, which offers one of the best views of the London cityscape. On such a gorgeous day, it was stunning! In the first picture, you can see the eye to the right, and St. Paul's, a little left of center.
Finally, I decided to walk back to my place...four and a half hours later! I walked back a different way through the park, so I would see new things.
So yes, it was a super nice day...long, and my feet hurt a little bit from all of the walking (I would say I walked at least twelve miles today) but fun. And hence, the blog to end all blogs is done with. Friends and family: I hope you're not getting too spoiled from all of the pictures. In about ten days, I'm going to be so busy with school and won't be taking/posting nearly as many! :)
