I really love having visitors. It's a nice taste of family and home, and we really like giving our family members a glimpse into our life here. Everything is better when it's shared, yeah? So we were all counting down the days until they came. And I also think Jess and Preston are super rad company because they are so adventurous and flexible. Even though Preston wasn't feeling his best, he was still such a trooper and we had a really great time.
Anyway, Tanya talked about an old pub that they loved to take their visitors to for the authentic pub experience. So we found it in an obscure alley, and had fish n' chips in the same rooms where the likes of Mark Twain, Alfred Tennyson, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Charles Dickens drank a pint.
Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, built in 1538, rebuilt in 1667.
At this point Simon and I split off to go pick up the kids from school and Richard took Jesston to the Tower of London and Tower Bridge. We all met up at Cutty Sark so we could eat dinner at Goddard's, another English must. Pie and mash with Blackcurrant cobbler for dessert.
Thanks so much Jess and Preston! I hope your European tour was phenomenal and I think its an experience you'll never regret. We love you so much.
