I suppose the following should be three posts, but a new mom has to be efficient, no?
Lance and I have taken advantage of a little bit of downtime during our respective maternity and paternity leaves to see a little more of greater London. I must say, it's pretty great. That includes Greenwich, the London zoo, and Richmond as depicted below.
|Richmond has over 100 green spaces. These are their meadows - in the middle of the city.|
|Plane Trees were planted all over London in the 1700 and 1800s because they did so well in the |
(chimney-induced) pollution of London. This here tree in the Richmond Gaucho's garden is the tallest
plane tree in London.
|My favorite part of London is its gardens. This is Richmond's terrace gardens.|
|Between 9-10 and 4-5, the path below is covered in water from the Thame's tide.|
|Tulip staircase in queen's castle-turned art museum in Greenwich.|
|Can't get enough of cherry blossoms, no matter where they are in the world.|
|We really do love the Greenwich Market.|
|What do you do with a spare castle (re)built by Henry VII and that Queen Elizabeth I died in?|
Turn it into primo residential properties...
|The Greenwich Naval Museum had several ship masts on display.|
Perhaps this one was breastfeeding?
|The Royal Naval College Chapel (left) and hall (right) were designed by architect Christopher Wren.|
|Copula of the great Hall at Greenwich.|
|Baby boy was a champ wherever we took him.|
|This used to be the fastest ship in the world.|
|Can you see the butterfly sign straight? They are keeping Mormons in cages in the London Zoo!|
|The "Common Mormon." Definition, please?|
