We began our day yesterday taking the tube to Madame Tussauds wax museum

Spent a few hours checking out the wax figures of movie/television stars and government figures.

Later we hopped over to Covent Garden for some light shopping and lunch.

Gail returned to the apartment while Erin & I spent some time on Bond Street where she was able to secure a few bargains.

Our evening began with going to the theatre and see the production of Mary Poppins.

By chance, Jim and I went to the box office a few days before and were able to secure four seats in the 10th row on the main floor. Though Jim & I had seen this show previously, it was very different viewing the show at such close range compared to the "roof top" seats we had in February.

Great show all seemed to enjoy.

Following the performance we headed over to The Ivy a few blocks from the theatre.

Dinner was excellent. Jim and I had the usual Thai Baked Sea Bass while Erin & Gail enjoyed "The Ivy" version of shepherd's Pie.

Long walking day, and much rest was needed.

I loved the where in the world is Jim photo. I have loved the updates and photos. I'm at work and it dreary and 34 degree's and checking out your trip has been a nice break. I liked this idea
