October 20 - London, England
["First photo taken after a tube ride downtown to Grosvenor St."]
I planned a lengthy walk-about for my first full day in London. I bet I covered about eight miles of historic, intensely-popular, scenic, busy, and completely interesting streets. I'm holding back the words 'awe-inspiring' because I'm saving them for the inside cover of my next book.
["Coach and Horses. Lovely, I say, but wrong time of day!"]
["Beautiful day as I approach gates of Buckingham Palace"]
["Oh, yeah, I'm smug. High Tea at four with the Queen"]
["Entrance to museum is well guarded. I look for side door"]
["So many interesting, educational, timely displays re WW2.
Assault Landing Craft (ALCs) were well-known to my dad"]
["Art on display held my interest to closing time"]
["I was dragging a suitcase first time I laid eyes on Albert Arms.
Didn't stop but made a mental note to see what Albert had on tap"]
["Last photo taken on the day. Five-minute
walk home, well before closing time : )"]
