Another outing day and again, it is bucketing rain! How does that work?? Archives days are nice and outing days are yucky. Not fair!! I think I should have brought my rain jacket instead of my ultra chic leather bomber jacket! Anyhow... this morning, we had a look at something that has always mystified us... Monument Tube Station actually has ... a Monument there!!! Who knew? You can pay a few quid to hike up the stairs on the inside and have a look around but... no... we were on a more important mission.
Getting to a Starbucks and finding a comfy chair with an electrical plug... and a hot chocolate of course!!! After a few happy hours there, but no sign of any other bears, we decided the rain wasn't going to let up and made our way via the tube to...
Yep... Baker Street!!! They famous Baker Street!
Jerry and Ben had recommended a visit here. As some of you know, one of my alter egos is Sherlock Sandy... and Ben said I might, just might... find an outfit here!
Oooohhhh... look!!! A whole flotilla of bears wearing a Sherlock outfit! (Ajdin will be happy to hear that these bears going bottom-less as well).
And then you could get keychains with small pipes and whistles and stuff. Those ones were sold out of course!
I asked one of the bears if they had any spare outfits for sale. It took a horridly long time for him to go downstairs and rummage around and call down a shop girl and... I admit I fell asleep eventually...
And woke up to find myself here!! Outside Big Ben and the Parliament Buildings (still bucketing rain). Mama wouldn't tell me if she had bought a Sherlock outfit.... saying "it's a surprise". Eh??? Little bears do not do surprises beary well!!!
