These are a just a few of my impressions of London though we saw much more like regular tourists, Westminster Abbey, the palace of Parliament, the reconstructed Globe theatre, Trafalgar Square, Princess Diana's Memorial Walk and the hunting lodge of Henry VIII, which is practically smack in the middle of modern London now. Oh and my daughter hung out at Camden with a few friends. The Shard and the London Eye stand out in modern contrast as well. London is famous for it's sights which all can be seen on many websites.
The London Eye
on the Thames with Keith
Brook Street where Jimmy Hendrix lived
London Bridge is actually Tower Bridge
Boudicca and her daughters
The Tower with the moat and traitor's gate to the tower now called Sir Thomas (Moore) tower. It gave me shivers imagining what it must have been like to have been held here awaiting your fate, like Thomas Moore, Anne Askew, Ann Boleyn, Catherine Howard and many. You had to pay your executioner to do a good job and forgive him the deed as well.

Windsor Castle but no tea with her majesty, she's at Balmoral in Scotland.
Across the Salisbury Plain
A mysterious monument, how was it built? What was it used for and who were the builders? It staggers the imagination and makes you realize the mystery of time. A blink of the cosmic eye.
