It's Red and White, at least.
Wednesday was a quiet 4th of July here in London. Anne and Michelle spent it doing laundry, relaxing, catching up on some video editing, and grocery shopping. Dinner in the flat followed by a nice evening walk and some strawberry shortcake made it a great day.

Thursday, Anne and Michelle took the train to Brighton to shop in the second hand stores and check out the seaside. The ride was not long and they found some pretty neat stores as well as a pretty cool toy museum. Michelle bought a few pairs of flowy pants and they spent some time at the Brighton Pier amusement park. They wandered up the beach and through the historic shops on the Lanes. They took the second to last train back to London, which ended up being quite crowded, and met Tony and his co-worker, Ankur, back at the flat for a game of Settlers of Catan. Ankur, though new to the game, was able to beat us all and get to 10 points first.

Friday, Michelle and Anne went back to Camden Market and Spitalfields Market before meeting Tony for a tour of the London office. Michelle

They are fixing it up, but it's impressive anyway.
picked up a few more pairs of pants, a hoodie, and a new dress at the Camden Market and Anne found a Princess Mononoke print shirt. The London Office is pretty cool and afterwards they toured the new apartments being built next door. The prices in the fancy, high end residential tower were much lower than expected, but still exceeded 1 Million (Pounds Sterling, not dollars). They finished the night with an Italian dinner and packing for the trip to Kent over the weekend.

The ever aggressive Seagull. The vendors will no longer replace food stolen by these birds.. the signs say so.
