As you can see, we started at the Tower of London, then Westminster Abbey (which was closed by the time we got there) so we then walked along the south bank to St Pauls. Gorgeous, gorgeous, historic and vibrant London. (Sorry Isabelle, I know you have a personal grudge against the place...look away now!)
I find certain buildings repeating themselves in my albums endlessly - Tower Bridge, the London Eye and now a newcomer - The Shard.
This chap was great. Worth every penny....oh no, the tour was free! He had to shout to be heard by well over a hundred followers and deal with 90% foreignness but he did it with grace, humour, opinionated political non-correctness and, at times, great poignancy.
One of the captive ravens of the Tower. Poor clipped-wing chap, hopping along, taking one for the team to save the Tower.
The sun came out and the sky was blue for our walk along the river. I love it. Those stunning, massive cityscapes in every direction mixing old and new and making you feel that you are in the middle of Somewhere Important.
So, have a great week everyone and I'll be back to write some stuff soon if I can remember how!!
