A Very Wet Day in London ...

So on Tuesday, me and James went to London, not to see the Queen, but to hopefully see the Crown Jewels at the Tower of London.


So the day started off great, James settled into his seat with his ipod and the journey down was very pleasant.



No rain yet, so a few snapped while we walked to the Tower of London over Tower Bridge.

But then it started to rain, and has Peter Kay would say "fine rain - the one that soaks you through"

So all my big plans to take loads and loads of great photos to use, went out of the window.

This is the nearest we got to having our photo taken with a Beefeater, did see another one doing a very rushed guided tour with a large cloak on.

Even the Raven's looked miserable.


We didn't get to see the Crown Jewels, the queue was about a mile long and we should have been standing in the queue for about 1 hour in the rain, before we even got to the door so after spending a few hours here, we decided to head over to Big Ben, which was a very long walk in the "fine rain" and we were so soak that we both wanted to go home, so a quick photo shoot here and we headed home 2 hours before we had planned too.





At Westminster Tube Station, came across these fancy tiles in the ladies toilets, was going to use the facilities, but didn't have a 50p for the privilege - LOL.

So even through it rained, and rained and rained, we had a good day, and are planning to go back at the next holidays.

Thanks for stopping by ...
