The first weekend was definitely full of all sorts of things. My last post detailed some of sights we saw while touring around London. However, we didn't just tour and sight see all weekend. We also did a little shopping at a local market. Portobello Market is one of the largest markets in London, stretching over two miles through widing city roads to the north of London.
C. Hat Pins
Got your guess? They're hat pins! Isn't it interesting? I'd love to wear hats with hat pins at home, but hats are definitely more of an English style than an American style.
We also took a small break in a nearby park, where we found some lovely flowers. Jen was convinced that these were the same flowers used in the Harry Potter movie. I'm not near the Harry Potter fan that Jen is but it was fun to see her excitement. I just thought they were pretty, especially with the intricate coloring on the inside.
So, in addition to the sights of London, the market, and my relaxing Sunday, it has been a busy weekend!
