Great Britain Fossil Expedition Day 10

Not much to report today as the majority of the day was spent travelling from St.Ives to London by train. Much better journey this time as we had pre booked seats. Once in London we stayed at the Renaissance St. Pancras Hotel, right at Pancras Station. This was a perfect layover for the fossils as we are right in the terminal that houses the Eurostar which we take to Paris tomorrow. It has been a bit of a challenge with pulling luggage on and off trains, through  streets and terminals, especially for the fossils. I have to remember that my Dear Mom is almost 90, so she really is doing a fabulous job of coping with all the travelling. We had access to the executive lounge at the hotel, whereby you get complimentary afternoon tea, evening wine or drinks and canapés. When we arrived we did go down for tea which Dear Mom and Uncle loved. From there we ventured out around the station for about an hour. The St.Pancras Station is a phenomenal building, one of the most beautiful in London. Double decker buses are everywhere. As soon as we got back to the hotel, Dear Mom asks to go back to the lounge as she wants to see what canapés are available….too funny, could hardly get her out of the place. We did manage to have a quick swim, then I tucked the fossils into bed as we have a busy day ahead of us tomorrow.
