Trip to London

As it's half term this week we decided to take a day out of a very busy week and spend a day together in London. Ben couldn't join us as he had to work so it was Jeff, Joshua, Ella and me. As always things weren't perfect. I mean, who would think that in the 21st century you could find a kiosk that doesn't take cards? And it wasn't my fault the bus route had been changed lol! It was a long day, and by the end of it I was literally crying with the pain in my foot and was up half the night with pain - really must go back to the hospital. Just a selection of photographs. The main attraction we were going for was Tower Bridge. Loved the architecture, I am a fan of buildings - but tbh, it's just a bridge LOL! The glass walkway was interesting. I'm sorry but the reason the earth is covered is so that you don't look down at an expense of falling! Everyone else loved it, just me being my usual wimpy tart that didn't appreciate it ;)

  1. Great trip! Sorry about your foot though. I went to London in 1982 on a class trip during spring break week (London & Paris). I sure wish I could have a digital photography do-over of that trip! Realistically I don't see myself leaving North America though.

    1. Hi JoJo, I know, I look at people now and think how lucky their are to be able to photograph anything and everything. When I was growing up a film for the camera and processing was a luxury! Although maybe that made us more careful and thoughtful, and we spent more time enjoying the views rather than observing them behind a lens? x

  2. Hi, Suzanne. So much for trying to plan the perfect day, huh, but it looks like you still had a good time. I hear you though on that glass floor. Yikes. Heights bother me too, although I fly in my husband's small plane no problem...so go figure :) That ferris wheel would bother me too. Have always wanted to see London......hoping to someday.

    1. Hi Sharon, no-one is getting me on the London Eye! Jeff has been on it a couple of times and he says the views are awesome - but, apart from the fact it is so high up, it just doesn't look safe!

  3. Sorry about your foot.
    You got some great shots. London is such a great town.
    And there's a place that doesn't take plastic? The horror.

  5. What lovely pics. The architecture is really gorgeous.

    I hope your foot doesn't start giving you trouble again.

    1. Hi Julie, me too - I'm hoping it's just the cold, and the screws need removing - nothing more permanent! x

  6. Hi Suzanne - I hope they can work out what's wrong with your foot - and help you. Long days on London streets are 'killers' ... I'm wondering what difference my new hip will make - it'll be interesting to find out.

    I went to a Bridge Exhibition held in that gallery on Tower Bridge - it was amazing to visit ...

    Love the generosity you've all displayed in the other posts ... cheers Hilary

    1. Hi Hilary, once my dad had his hip replaced he felt like a new man. He'd even given up playing a round of golf, but now is back to walking all those miles around a course, so hopefully you'll be the same around London :) x
