A great day!

After a few cups of coffee, a sausage sandwich and some breast milk, Charlie and I caught the 88 bus to Regent Street.  The 88 is the least expensive bus tour of London's greatest attractions.  Once you get to the other side of the river, you pass the Tate, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, Whitehall, Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square.

We walked a few blocks on Regent Street to the world's largest Apple Store.  There's nothing any different about the store, it's just bigger.

Charlotte wants an iPad, but she's going to wait for the iPad3.

 We went to a few stores to look for toys so that I could spoil my daughter.  We didn't find anything very compelling, though Charlotte (naturally!) took to the £30 handmade giraffe at John Lewis.  I told her that maybe we'd bring it home next time.

I learned early in the day that it's difficult to take photos with our fancy camera among the crowds of central London, so I'm afraid this is about all we have.  We went to Mamas and Papas for a diaper change, Marks & Spencer for a bottle, and then we took the bus back to Clapham.

We had a tea together at Under the Greenwood Tree, but we skipped the pond because we both needed a nap.  Only Charlie didn't nap (I did), and so she struggled to stay awake until 8pm and missed Skype with her mum.  Something to look forward to tomorrow!
