Beanie's Birthday Weekend in London, Day Three

On Sunday, when we were having breakfast, Andrea said we were going to Do Something Special today!!  But first, we had to pack our stuff up and put it in the baggage room downstairs, because we were being moved to a different bunkbed room when we got back.

After we'd done that, we got a bus to Liverpool Street Station.  Hang on, we went there last year too...!

  We found a wonderful Statue of Bob T Bear's great great grandbear who came over from Poland in 1939.  Apparently we're meeting somebody here later on.....

 Then we went for a wander round since we had some time to spare.  We met Bunny!

 Then we came back to Liverpool Street Station, where the Great Eastern Railway works. 

 AND WE MET BOB T BEAR!!!!!!!!!!!  YAY!!!

 We travelled on Subway to a place called Angel, and it was so busy we were packed like sardines!!  Just as well it was only three stops.  Then we had a little walk, and found a drain cover that looked like a bear!

 We saw a shop that was A Very Special Bear Adoption Centre!!  We met a Giant bear outside!

 And we finally arrived at Cass Art Shop, where we were going to spend money!!!

 We did loads of shopping, it was great fun!!!

 Then we walked round to a restaurant called Browns for lunch, and passed a bookshop with a mouse in the window!!

 At the restaurant, we all sat down and said hello to everyone!!!  There was Bob T Bear, Dilly, me, Tango and George!!!  We were having a party!!!

 Tango and George had presents for Bob and Dilly.  Tango gave Bob a hole cutter gadget that cuts out bear shapes!  George got Dilly a little bottle of Pink Parfum!!!

Bob had a present for Tango too - an Orange Push Push car!!!!  How fab is that!?!?!??!

 Dilly had crochetted a scarf for George!!

 It fit him perfectly!!  He sleeps in it too!!!

 There's Bob and Tango again with the push push car.....

 and THEN, Bob gave me a present too!!!

 It's a box of gingerbread Bears that have Jazzy Pants on!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 See?!?!  I love these!!

 Dilly gave me a birthday card with a chocolate coin in too!!!  and a picture of a mouse!

 Bob gave me a card too, it had a bear on it!!!

 Then we had lunch.  Bob's Mum spotted a drink on the menu called Elderberry Fizzy which sounded interesting, so we got one and so did Bob's Mum!!!

 These were seriously yummy drinks too...!

 I had a Fakey Bacon Burger with fries for lunch.

 and so did Bob!!!  He had mayonnaise on his chips and was scooping out the mayo with his paws!!!

 Then we decided to ride the buses back to the station.  We took the long way round (via Victoria) because that's the only way Andrea knows how to get there!!!)  Which is good, because Bob and Tango had never been on a London Bus before!!

 They had a fabulous time waving out of the window to people!!!

 We couldn't get them away!!!

 At Victoria Station, we got off the bus and walked past another adoption centre to get another bus, the number 11 to Liverpool Street.

 Here we are going past Westminster Abbey.

 We all stopped for coffee before Bob and Dilly went home....

 George and Dilly didn't want to leave!!!  Neither did any of us - we had such fun today!!!

 After we waved them goodbye, we got the bus back to the youth hostel.

 And we checked into our new room for the night.  We got Bunk One this time, another top bunk!!!

 After that, we were starving, so we went out to a place called Strada for pizza.  It wasn't as nice and the Pizza Express pizze though.....

We're exhausted.  Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz..............................
