London Walkabout

Our hotel is well situated – close to a number of under ground stations, restaurants, and pubs.   Breakfast is in a common area with full English or more healthy options.  They provide a same day laundry service at 7 GBP per load that should keep me from having to wash socks in the sink for the rest of the trip.

We toured the Tower of London in the morning.  It looks quite different from when Mary and I were there in ’14 during the WWI centennial.  Then, the entire moat was filled with red poppies in remembrance of the war dead.  Our tour guide was hilarious – he really got into the gory details of the executions and tortures.  The kids loved it.  We did the ‘Tower Bridge Experience’ in the afternoon which included a visit to the engine room.  Reminded me of the 4-stand mill basements at Gary Works.

Shaun hooked up with us at the Euston Tap after he got off work.  After a few pub stops and an excellent Indian dinner we bid him farewell and headed back to the ranch.
