Travel to Oxford Day Three

This morning we woke up and Andrea's ears didn't hurt!!!  Hurray!!!!  After having a tea in our room, we came down for breakfast and had cornflakes an orange juice

We got proper coffee too!!!  Excellent!!

AND we got scrambled eggs and toast!!!  We've never had that for breakfast and it was yummy!!!

Then we had to go and pack our stuff up because it was time to go home.
We've had such a fun time though!!!

We remembered to take a picture of the stained glass by the front door - it's really pretty!

And then it's just a short walk down here.....

.....to the train station!

Not long for our train either.....!

And we're off!!!

Oh wow, it's so pretty!

We tied a weathergram to the seat in front!!

video
And made a little video too!

Back in London, we caught up with Paddington Bear again!!!

We had a good ol' chat too!  See - we even do the "Bear Slouch" just like he does!!
He's a legend!!!

Then it was off to the bus stop.....

To get the 205 bus back to St Pancras.

We gave them a weathergram too!

We're off!

We saw some interesting buildings too.....

And then we got off here!!!

And it was another short walk down the road to here.....!
We did a spot of shopping at the Fortnum & Mason's shop first.

And then went to the train station for a short wait for our train!!!

And we're off!!!

video
We made another video....!

And got off at Brighton!!

Then we hopped on another bus!

....not far to go now!!

And a short walk home from the bus stop!!
We're sad to leave Oxford but we'll be glad to sleep in our own bed!!!
That was fun!
