One afternoon Sean and I went over to Somerset House to see the Courtauld Collection. In the courtyard of the palace the seasonal ice rink was in full swing. It was a little too cold for me to consider skating though.
I really loved all of the real Christmas trees around town. I feel like most of the big trees in Houston are artificial ones. There’s something about a huge real Christmas tree that’s very magical.
When we left the museum it was dusk already, 3:30 PM.
Another afternoon we went to Marylebone High St to look at some shops and see one of the oldest pubs in London.
The little streets around this part of town were decorated with lights, and not just Christmas lights. Part of the decorations were long colorful florescent bulbs hanging in different patterns on different streets. Pretty cool.
