The London Eye

These photos are from our family perspective on what we saw on the way to the London Eye
 in London August 19,2008

The London Eye


A wizard?

Parliament building 

We are on The London Eye !

My daughter was 10 years old at the time and was very scared as we began to  go up. It didn't help that my 8 year old son kept teasing her about it. He kept saying, "What if suddenly it broke off and we rolled into the water..." I kept having to tell him to stop and that his sister is really scared.

According to the official website
The London eye is 135m, which is equivalent to 64 red telephone boxes
piled on top of each other. It's the world's largest observation wheel and 

the 4th tallest structure in London. 

We are down and we survived. A very happy 10 year old :) and happy Mickey too.

More exploring to get a closer look at the Parliament building
and Big Ben
