Trip to Oxford – August 11-12, 2001

Abruptly, that's the end of the first day. Well, not really. We met up as this crazy Cajun place called "Old Orleans" where we imbibed many cocktails and ate a huge meal. (Ian got the "Swamp & Turf", which was a steak and alligator!) Then Ian headed home to London while the other two and I went back to the B&B for some shut-eye. Fast forward to the next morning...

We had a huge English breakfast down in the dining room before checking out and heading back into Oxford. Our first stop was the "Oxford Story", where we sat in these weird desks that got dragged "back through history" past animatronic scenes from Oxford's past. It ruled. And at least it got us out of the rain.

The dreaming spires... - click to enlargeI was all about seeing the famous "dreaming spires" from up high, so we headed to the tower of St. Michael's Church. Here's a nice view...

Fire engines - click to enlargeThere was actually a fire raging somewhere in the town below while we were up there. You can just see the fire engines in this picture. The smoke is off the picture to the right.

Sister - click to enlargeShe thinks she looks "bushy-headed", but I think she looks cute.

Down Cornmarket street - click to enlargeHere's the view down Cornmarket Street, which (I think) was supposed to be a pedestrian zone, except that they were doing a lot of construction on it.

Sisters - click to enlargeCould we look more different? I assure you, we are in fact sisters though.

Disgustingly cute - click to enlargeHow cute are we? Answer: so cute. I don't have many good pictures of us, but I like this one.

Anyway, the rain was still coming down and we'd seen just about everything we cared to see, so we hopped on the bus back to London and were home eating Papa John's by 4:00. And that's it for Oxford!

The End!
