We had nothing planned for Sunday so we all wen our separate ways on our own adventures. I did some shopping for gifts for the kids and Sarah and then met Keith near Piccadilly in the afternoon. We spent a nice day catching up and sightseeing.
I took the tube to Piccadilly Circus to shop for the kids at Hamley’s toy store.
The Crown on Brewer Street.
Trafalgar Square at night.
Keith trying to take a night photo, too. We’re standing on the front porch, so to speak, of the National Gallery.They were getting ready to close, but we did get to see a new exhibition, Manet to Picasso, which featured some great pieces like Van Gogh’s Sunflowers and Renoir’s The Umbrellas, among much else.
Then we strolled down to the Houses of Parliament to see Big Ben.

The giant London Eye ferris wheel across the Thames.
That night Keith and I had dinner at the Seven Stars pub.
The Seven Stars in Holborn is an ancient pub that celebrated its 400th anniversary in 2002.
Keith and me before I dropped him off at the tube station and walked back to my hotel, stopping at the Queen’s Larder for a last pint.
