FYI- pretty cool to remember the Americans.
Westminster Abbey- I can’t wait to go in- I will eventually spend the money.
St. Paul’s at night. Walking around trying to find the Thames and some guy told me to go the roof of this mall for the view. It was worth it!
For my mom!
Thought my mom would like this- every where Police have dogs- this is so you don’t freak out!
The palace. The palace was not as amazing as you would hope it would be. The white house is somehow more grand the palace. No wonder the British hate this building.
Love it! Hyde Park crossing. One of the crossings from Hyde park showed horse and bike- on the other side was a little man for walking.
Flag- Half staff. There was an uproar about the flag at half staff over the Saudi king dying.
Me and Big Ben
Me- yep in London- My first real London site
Hyde park domesticated squirrels.
They walk right up to you. One girl had one on her shoulder and another on her lap. They are awfully cute. The birds- the birds I could do without.
It amazes me how much is dedicated to Victoria and Albert in London- way more than any other king or queen. And the love she had for Albert was incredible. This is in his memory of her Prince- consort.
London Bridge at night.
I walked both ways of this bridge, then lost my necklace, so I walked it four more times! But lit up at night- Simply gorgeous. The detail is stunning- even the windows are beautiful.
A half bridge forgotten.
Walking by the Thames and saw this ‘bridge’? It looks like they forgot about it.
Big Ben, police, parliament.
To bad parliament was in session- I would have loved to tour it.
Good picture of the eye.
Big Ben was directly to my left.
Flowers in bloom- January?
I saw these flowers in Hyde Park on the Diana memorial walk. The smell was so strong it wiped out all the smells of the city- though honestly London doesn’t smell that badly. But it’s January and they were in bloom- they plant them frequently to make sure there are some in bloom. Wow!
Hyde Park church/visitor center.
I thought this was a very interesting looking church building and thought you should see it. Love where and how they stuck the steeple.
