It was Saturday that I got my first look at London proper. I was so taken with the old buildings from centuries past.

This building is called The Gherkin. London is a town of the very old side by side with the very new.


Tower Bridge is really beautiful! I wished I could call the boys to watch me cross on the live video...

After that we drove back home for Fish and Chips!

It was a nice slow paced day. I was still tired, but I couldn't wait for the next day when I was going to tour London's sites.
