More Adventures in London (and the Best Breakfast in London!??)

On Sunday morning we woke up STUPIDLY early to go watch a the London to Brighton Vintage car parade.  I was only swayed out of bed because I knew after the parade I would get brunch, and brunch is the best thing ever.  Luckily the weather was so nice and it wasn't raining.

They were already crossing the westminster bridge when we arrived
It was pretty cool to see the cars driving as most of the time I see them parked up in fields.  Some of the cars went quite quick.  Many of the cars were very slow.

It was also cool to watch them going past Big ben! I had to take a tourist photo.
Unfortunately not all the cars made it out of london, this poor guy broke down a mile after the start  On the plus side, if the RAC guy likes classic cars this would be the best day of his life
London Weekend
After the cars we walked past buckingham Palace and I found a cafe called Pimlico Fresh.  It looked straight out of portland, with benches and a menu written on the wall.  Brewerhalf ordered cheese on toast, because he is soooo Welsh
I ordered the spanish omlette, with choritzo and feta and veggies and tasty fresh bread
So much eggs! So much delicious! I love breakfast, it is my favorite meal of the day for sure. I cannot wait to visit the home of amazing breakfast (Portland Oregon) but until then this tour-de-eggy-force will certainly suffice!

When in London brewer half and I love using Boris Bikes to get around. For £2 a day we can rent bikes for up to 30 minutes with no charge.  it's much cheaper than taking the Tube and you get to see lots of parts of London! It's always been hectic before because we didn't know exactly where we were going and one of us (usually the Brewer) had to be holding a phone to navigate, which wasn't so safe or easy.  But this is all over now because we have the Garmin! it's a GPS for the bikes, and got us around with no problems.  Amazing!
On Sunday afternoon we spent some quality time at the British Museum and then at the Holborn Whippett - our new favorite pub in London.
It was truly an epic weekend in London!
(note - that is not a Borris Bike)
