On our way there, we passed by the Opera House... beary grand...
It was nice to see the sun out. It was early enough that the crowds weren't out though!
It's all decorated for Christmas!!
Do you recognize this place?? Probably not - it looks beary different without hordes of people. It's Covent Garden!!
I came to say goodbye to Paddington Bear... He's such a polite bear, always tipping his hat.
The reindeer on the sleigh looks like he has a friend in the clouds! Is it a little bear on skies?
Wow... those sure are big Christmas baubles!
And huge candy canes too!
On our way to the embankment, we passed by a couple of theatres. This one was playing The Lion King!!! Now why didn't we go to that??
And a cute little chapel in behind the Savoy Hotel...
Alright... we are here. And we're supposed to find a needle??
Hmmm... this statue has funny hieroglyphics on it. I'll ask this nice lion if he's seen any needles lying around.
Gulp... not a lion!!! It's a Sphinx!!
He told me to look up... look way, way up... (that sounds like the Friendly Giant!).
It's an obelisk! That's Cleopatra's Needle. I sure hope she didn't have to sew with that. And it's not Obelix... but obelisk... I have to remind Mama about that... she apparently was raised on Asterix and Obelix!
