Tate to Tate

Henry and I went on our first tourist outing today.  We braved the rain and took a quick walk to the Tate Britain museum.  It’s only a few blocks from our flat and features British art.  I can tell you the coffee from the lobby kiosk was delicious, but we were quickly on our way to better things.  We crossed the street and hopped on the Tate-to-Tate Clipper ferry, the quickest way up the Thames river to the Tate Modern, which features modern art.  Much more scenic than taking the tube, we were able to see Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and The London Eye along the way.  And Henry loved the boat ride.  After a quick lunch at the Tate cafe, we started at the top floor with cubists and minimalists before Henry started crying loudly and then louder still because he was so enjoying the echoes of his screams in the galleries.  With two months here, I know we’ll have an opportunity to come back at least.
 
Below are pictures of Henry on the Thames, at the Millbank Pier, on the Clipper and under a scary spider sculpture outside of the Tate Modern.  If I keep this up, I might have to get him a gnome costume. – Kristine
