So, last week when the whole world's eyes were on London and the Queen's celebrations, we decided with JJ to rent a car and simply leave. It was the first time we had so many days off together in 2012 and we decided to have a road trip! We do love to take a car and simply drive to places. Also, we knew that watching the celebrations on the television would probably be better. The following pictures describe what we did.
Our first stop was the New Forest Wildlife Park. That picture's from the butterfly area.
Otters are so cute...
The first time I saw a wallaby
Lovely stickers... Can you see the 'sushi' comment on the bottom?
Having breakfast in Bournemouth (not fish and chips)
Playing cricket by the sea in a cold grey day...
tempted to jump in
Torquay: the English Riviera...
We couldn't not have proper English tea with scones, a very camp lemon cake and everything else in old china that day!
Torquay beach when the tide is high
Increasing my cholesterol tenfold in a Texan restaurant! Amazing food and cocktails...
Poster in a pub. The picture's a bit blurry. Don't ask me if I had a drink earlier
We had amazing time driving around the South West coast of England. I don't regret not staying in London to see the flotilla and the other celebrations live. We managed to see most of it on the television anyway. There are so many nice places to visit and see in the UK.
