The London Film Museum

Grandma Kay and I met at Waterloo station and walked towards the London Film Museum. We stopped to have a cappuccino at the Charles Dickens Coffee House:

The next stop was the exhibit at the Film Museum, which is located right next to the London Transport Museum. The Film Museum was having a special exhibit on the James Bond cars.

The first car we saw was an old Rolls Royce. This one is from Goldfinger (notice that the license plate is AU1).

Here’s some more photos of cars:

It was fairly dark inside and I was taking photos with my phone, so it was quite difficult to get good shots. One photo came out focused on the wrong thing:

I did get a couple good panoramas though:

Here’s a goofy photo of the Jaguar from Die Another Day:

This Aston Martin Vantage could ski in The Living Daylights:

This is Little Nellie:

Here’s the Mustang from Diamonds Are Forever:

You can see my reflection in this 007 sign:

When we had finished in the exhibit we walked through Covent Garden, where we saw a levitating man:

We ate lunch at Maxwell’s.

After lunch we went to Saint Paul’s Cathedral. We got there on the bus. Since they don’t accept cash on the bus, you need to use an Oyster card or a credit card with a wireless chip in it. I had neither. Supposedly Apple Pay should work on the buses, but after 5 minutes of fumbling around with this on the bus, the bus driver just let me get on for free.

Here’s some pictures that I took while outside Saint Paul’s Cathedral.

We found a statue of a man who we presumed to be Saint Paul:

Here’s Queen Anne with Saint Paul’s Cathedral:

Here’s me and Anne and Saint Paul’s Cathedral:

We thought about going inside Saint Paul’s, but they wanted £16.00 per person to look around!

Grandma and I decided to head back. I tried to get on a bus again, but wasn’t able to score a free trip this time. We ended up taking a weird route back to Waterloo. This involved going on the London Underground for the first time on this trip. I ended up buying an Oyster card after being annoyed with the inconvenience of not being able to get on a bus.

Grandma Kay and I met Uncle Richard at Waterloo. Then Grandma went home and Uncle Richard and I got on an overground train towards Feltham. Here’s a sneaky photo of Uncle Richard:

Once home, we had some veggies and dip and some Tanglefoot (Uncle Richard’s favorite beer to drink from a can). For dinner we had Hunter’s Chicken, potatoes, and peas. Thank you for cooking Uncle Richard!

Angharad pead on the floor; I took an artsy photo of my plate of food.

Next we relaxed. So did Rita.

Later on in the evening, Uncle Richard and I went to The Three Horseshoes, which, as you can see on this map, is very close to the middle of Feltham:

How many people are dead in there??? ALL of them!

We met two of Uncle Richard’s friends at the pub. Here’s Dave and my Guinness, which featured a shamrock on top.
