(As a side note- when Cameron was little he couldn’t say Grandma, so he started called both his grandmothers “Baca” and the name just stuck.)
We decided to meet Baca and Grandpa in Canary Wharf because we were all excited and I thought it would be easier than trying to have them find their way to our house. So we took the DLR into Canary Wharf and played at the park until we heard from them. I didn’t take my camera with me so all I have from that day are photos from my phone.
Since they had their luggage with them we decided to come back home. I assumed they would want a nap but after we got back to our house and did a quick home-tour they said they would rather try and push through to night. We decided to walk to Greenwich, through the park, and meet up with Richard for dinner at Goddard’s.
We walked through the park and stopped at the Royal Observatory, where the prime meridian runs and the point from which time is measured throughout the entire world. We saw a couple more of the benches from the “Books About Town.”
After that my mom realized she had left her Oyster card at home so she took my dad’s and we took the littles home on the DLR and Richard walked with my dad and Cameron.
At the time I am writing this my dad has already left and gone back to the states, but it was such a pleasure to have him here and watch him explore and appreciate all the things we love about our life here. We would love to share that excitement with ANYONE who wants to come visit us. So there’s that.
