We had a great time visiting with Helen in London..The first day was Bank Holiday so we got to spend some time with her and then. as she had to work we visited the city - Tues and Wed.
Day 1 - a trip to the London Eye. We got off the train at London Bridge stop and walked for about an hour till we found the London Eye only to find had we stayed on the train one more stop we would have been right there!!! Still the walk along the waterfront was lovely and we got to see a couple of interesting sights.
We finally made it to the London Eye and it was well worth it.... amazing views of the city and surrounds.
My camera's zoom is fabulous... as you can see it was a super day.... nice and clear.
After the Eye we were off to the London Tower.... back near London Bridge were we had got off the train but rather than walk back we decided to taxi a taxi.... a real London cab.
Finished the day by walking across London Bridge
At Covent Gardens watched the street performers for hours and then walked over to the cathedral. Do you know there are 259 steps to the top to look out over London? Well I do... I huffed and puffed my way up.... first to the Whispering Gallery inside the dome and then up the the outside viewing. Very proud to make it all the way.
Please come back to see the wonderful sights of Paris....
