Tower of London


 Our 4th day in London was busy with a boat ride on the River Thames
 more walking, and more rides on busses and the Tube all over Central
 London. We boarded the river cruise at Westminster Pier near the Eye
 and continued to the Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. The live
 commentary was an interesting way of learning more about London and
 the buildings and bridges we passed. Great history lesson too.

  London Street Scenes 

Interesting confrontation with London Police (in yellow vests)

Traffic was stopped, a lot of yelling, could have been a parking ticket!

One person involved kept taking cell phone pictures of the police...


  Open Boat River Tour of London 

Boat Traffic on the River Thames

We enjoyed the commentary and history lesson as well as the sights.


Our tour guide said the original London Bridge had much more character, and we noticed
some resentment in his voice. In 1968 original London Bridge was sold to an American Oil
Co. executive, R.P. McCulloch for $2.46 Mil. and reconstructed at

Lake Havasu City, AZ.


Perfect May weather for a boat ride!


Royal Navy Ship

More Office Buildings

Passing a floating restaurant...


Approaching Tower Bridge...

 Tower Bridge, an engineering wonder that puts its plainer sibling, the London Bridge
to shame. (We didn't get a chance to see the Tower drawbridge lifted.)


 The Tower of London in the background. Tour guides recount tales of royal
conspiracy, treason, and murder. The White Tower was both fortress and
residence of kings.

A better view of the Tower of London as the boat made a turn at Tower Bridge!


 A Dinner or Luncheon Cruise on River Thames
