This is really one of the best sets of photos I have taken in a while….

Edison’s West Orange Laboratory

Always wanted to visit Edison’s Laboratory, unfortunately we were unable to tour or see his house due to damage from last years hurricane.


Stonehenge was our last  stop on our day tour and the end of our last day in England.  I will say that this place was anti-climatic for me, I guess I was expecting something more…..spiritual or I am not sure of the word I m looking for.  In reality it was a bunch of really big rocks.  But it was Stonehenge.  I am not happy with my photos here, but it is Stonehenge…..

Bath, England

This was the second stop on our day long bus tour.  Absolutely beautiful town with original baths built by the Romans in 60-70 AD, while the building above the pools was built in the 1800’s.  We were also able to visit the Bath Abbey and the current structure was built in the 16th Century.


Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter

We ordered tickets for this the day after we confirmed out London trip, 3 months in advance.  Saturday, May 5 was the earliest tickets available which worked well for us as that was the only day we could go.

I have to give Warner Brothers credit for making the start of this tour quite breath-taking.  We were sent into a room as a group where a short video welcomed us and gave us a few rules.  We then moved to the next room,  which was a theater with very nice seats, and watched a short video welcoming us to Leavesden Studios and the 3 main stars of the Franchise talked about growing up on the studio lot.

The short movie ended, the screen went up with us looking at the entry for the Great Hall at Hogwarts’.  It really was a WOW moment.  With some fanfare, the great doors were opened and we went into the Great Hall to begin our tour.  The photos below are just a fraction of what we saw……

St. Pancras Train Station

St. Pancras is next door to Kings Cross.  This is where you board the Eurostar to travel under the English Channel to Paris.
