Logan, Harvey, Michael and Haley arrived at Heathrow this morning to meet up with Rick and Ruth Anne. Not a bad flight considering we had a one year old in tow. After a coffee and a quick nap, we headed out to The Defectors Weld for lunch and some beers. Sunday is apparently is a day where many pubs eschew the normal pub fare and do a day of roasts. The Defectors Weld had some great beer can chicken and some Rosemary lamb for Haley and Michael.
I (Michael) have always enjoyed the different pub names in the UK. Across the street from The Defectors Guild was The Green and we also passed The Bird in Hand on the way.
After stopping by a wine / beer store with disappointing beer selection we stopped by Brewdog, a larger brewer based in Edinburgh. A kolsh for Haley, a lager for Rick and an IPA for Michael put us in a pretty good place. We headed back to the flat for some champagne and relaxing. 12 hours in and this vacation is shaping up very well. Tomorrow we will head to the London Eye for Harvey’s (second of three) first birthday party. Cheers.
