Tuesday Sept. 1st is our last day in London. We've had an amazing time so far. I'm going to post some random pics for you to enjoy. All kinds of architecture that just blew me away. The Tower of London, the tubes, the food and pubs! Such an adventure!!
|Yes it's chilly and drizzling.|
|Tower of London|

|The size of the diamond on the scepter was mind boggling!|
I took a lot of pictures of doors. They fascinate me and there were plenty of all different shapes and sizes to choose from. One common feature on a lot of the doors is the doorknobs are in the middle.
We rode a double decker bus..of course :)
|You aren't getting inside the walls of Buckingham Palace...no way.|
|We toured Buckingham Palace and of course weren't allowed to take pics. BUT, I could once I got outside and had tea and a pastry. That's whipped cream on top..oh my!|
|Leaving the Palace|
We rode every mode of transportation we could think of, tubes (subways), buses, trains, and cabs. I can't tell you how impressed we were with the cleanliness of the tubes! At first I thought maybe we rode in a new car. They're color coded and we rode in a yellow, but then we rode on a green - because yes, we got lost once, and both were like new! At least we weren't in a hurry so it didn't matter. I love to get lost when it doesn't matter!
|Check it out! Upholstered seats! The Brits want to be comfortable!|
|We noticed they don't have skyscrapers. Found out the ground underneath couldn't hold the weight. Their buildings look pretty hefty though..and gorgeous!|
|They call these Black Cabs...hmmm.|
|O! Paul found a Buckeye tree!! O-H-I-O!|
|Door look familiar?|
