We spent much of today visiting some of the most iconic sites around London. The day started with a guided tour of Westminster Abbey...where a small wedding recently took place (that was what our tour guide kept saying :).

After we left Westminster Abbey we had a picnic lunch in Trafalgar Square...

and attended a concert in St. Martin-in-the-Fields. The concert was performed by a trio--a piano, a flute, and an oboe. I used to play the oboe in high school, I never sounded like the woman playing today. ; ) It was beautiful and a perfect rest before we headed off to our next stop...the London Eye!

We were all so excited for the views but were surprised when the group that got in the pod after us was a wedding party! The couple exchanged vows right there on the London Eye!
After the London Eye a group of us ventured off to Notting Hill to see the final installment of the Harry Potter movies! One of the girls in the program found this amazing little theatre that was showing the movie. It was a historical theatre so only had 2 screens, both with balcony seats available. The movie, of course, was perfect but made better by the fact that I am in London and seeing the movie in such a historical setting! Throughout the movie I laughed and I cried. And when it was all over I had a great group to discuss it with!
