July 30 to 31 -- San Francisco to London

Uneventful, albeit long, flights to London. Because we were using United frequent flier miles Julie and Patrick were on one flight while Brian and Christopher were on an earlier flight. The Heathrow Express worked great to get from Heathrow to Paddington. From there quick cab rides took us to our hotel, The London Marriott County Hall.

The location of the hotel was almost perfect. The London Eye was right next door, Big Ben and Parliament were just across the Thames. Our room had a great view. Christopher and Brian did the London Eye while waiting for the room to be ready. When Julie and Patrick arrived, it was another trip on the London Eye. Not everyone does it twice in one day, but Christopher LOVED IT!!!

Then it was a river tour up and down the Thames. This was just the sort of passive/active activity that we needed to help adjust to the time change. (OK, it wasn't active enough for Patrick who slept for most of it.)
