After our visit to the Tower, we walked along the Thames embankment
We came across this party of school children, painting pictures of Tower Bridge*
Each child had their shoes and water bottles neatly set beside them, and were totally absorbed in their task.
They completely ignored the slack jawed British tourists who openly expressed their amazement at the children’s exemplary behaviour,
we reckoned there must have been 60 or more children, and as far as we could see, only two adults overseeing them. I don’t think you’d get that ratio past a school trip risk assessment in the UK.
We had tea and cake at the Tate Modern, where we were privileged to watch peregrine falcons, perched on the roof, through telescopes provided by the RSPB
Mr Uphilldowndale succumbed to a little green tractor envy
we had fun trying to photograph St Pauls Cathedral and London busses.
It is a very long time since I’ve played ‘tourist’ in London, back in my day, you needed an A-Z, it seems they are things of the past; how do we get home?
(have you heard about the new glass walkway at Tower Bridge? Not for the faint hearted).
