On June 1st, 2004, Alex, Shannon, and I flew over to see my parents in Kew, England.

We had a 12-hour layover in Seattle, so we went down to the oceanfront and hung out at the aquarium.

Alex touching something slimy

Gadzooks, fish in the cieling!

A Sea Dragon, or is it a piece of seaweed?

A butt-ugly Wolf-Eel and some snapper or something.

Cute Sea Otter. Most memorable line: "Dude, its like, goin' down on itself!"

A butterfly...or is it a moth? You decide!

We made it to London after a cramped plane-ride. One of the first things we did upon arriving was to go the the famous "London Eye" It was here we encountered what appeared to be a group of unemployed carnies. Here was one whose mother can be pround, her son imitates statues! Do you have to go to school for that sort of thing? And I thought my job got boring!

The London Eye

An impressive view from the Eye-Big Ben and the Houses of Parliment

The Eye from across the Thames (pronounced "Tems," reaffirming my theory that British culture is inherently fruity)

A super-cool gargoyle parched outside Westminster Cathederal

The Lady of Shallot

A very intelligent American tourist making a call on a phone that is clearly "Out of Order"

Big Ben and cool evening lights

Alexandra's first castle: the infamous Tower of London

One of those sentries who should be stomping your ass for acting like a fool, but has to stand at attention and endure the mockery of silly tourists.

A very silly tourist

An ill-gotten picture of the last crown on the Crown Jewels tour, during which pictures are prohibited. Fortunately they are not prohibited right outside the back door! He he he!

Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda Who'll come a waltzing Matilda with me And their ghosts may be heard as you pass the Billabong Who'll come-a-waltzing Matilda with me?

British Military something-or-other

That's not a knife....those are knives!!!

Models are cool; models ARE cool.

The Crown of Queen Alexandra

This looks like trouble

Some cute English wench peeking out from the guard post outside the Tower

I wish we had eaten here. Jolly good name, simply smashing!

Some lunatic harrassing the pigeons in front of the National Art Gallery

Inside the British Museum of History

Walkin' like an Egyptian

The Rosetta Stone. If you (the viewer) don't know the significance of this rock, thats too bad, I'm not gonna tell you.

Some Assyrian (I think??) god of protection

C'mon Mom, its just the best pieces from the Parthenon, I'm bored, lets go to the arcade!

Have fun storming the castle!

The gardens at Windsor Castle were astounding

Another very taboo picture. Shhh, don't tell.

This is a house on drugs
