The rest of the story....continued from yesterday's entry.
Big Ben...which I keep accidentally referring to as "Big Bend"......it just rolls right off my tongue because I am used to referring to the Big Bend area in South Texas.
Big Ben(d) ;)
I sat in on a service for awhile. A beautiful choir was singing.
No, it was not a full service. The half dozen other people there were also cheap tourists getting in on Sunday for "worship".
Isaac found a game of cricket. If you know him well , then that should make you smile knowing that he got that close to playing a game of baseball!
One of DOZENS of trains rides we took in 3 days.
Castle outside of Little Hampton, England. This is the town Naomi was raised in. Her mother graciously hosted us for a night. A Duke lives here, you can ask Jekabs (aka....smarty pants) for the details. ;)
Brighton, England......on the South Coast.
This town is quite popular. The old stomping grounds of one of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert's sons.
We ate some delicious fish and chips (french fries) here and strolled through the downtown shopping district.

And finally....our resting spot. Arriving at Jekabs' parents apartment and eating McD's.
Conclusion: I have determined that England was the perfect transition into European life. England sits in the middle of a half American/half European lifestyle. Just perfect for getting settled in. Now we are ready to set some shallow roots.
