This weekend, the Duckies took a trip to the city of River Thames- London! They enjoyed the beautiful weather as they waddled through the capitol of the United Kingdom.
Yellow Ducky’s favorite attraction of the whole trip was the Tate Modern Art Museum. This brand new, 14 year old museum has been the home to works of art from famous artists such as Jackson Pollock, Andy Warhol, and Pablo Picasso!
Pink Ducky loved visiting the large buildings and palaces and around London! She particularly enjoyed Buckingham Palace. “This is HUGE,” she thought as she quacked around the royal grounds. This 309 year old palace has 775 rooms, imagine that!
Blue Ducky savored the sight of Big Ben, the 316 foot tall clock tower in the middle of the city! It stands at the end of the Palace of Westminster, which is where the House of Commons and the House of Lords- the two houses of Parliament- meet!
Green Ducky loved riding on the London Eye, the 443 foot tall Ferris Wheel on the river’s edge. This Ferris Wheel is still brand new to the city, only having opened at the beginning of the millennium in 2000. It can hold 200 people at a time!
