And now for a little more of my stroll around London. The weather was awfully, well, London-y, but I suppose that was to be expected. It wasn’t the most exciting day ever, but it was pretty sweet to get a chance to see the sights and touristy crap and the city. London certainly kicks the shit out of the rest of England…. So let’s take a walk along the Thames.
A fallen sailor memorial.
That’s pretty damn British.
And this here is the Tower of London.
Just goes to show, don’t bring a sword to a sword fight when the other guy has a crazy magical sword that can shoot you.
I’m like 90% sure this is Princess Kate.
The Tower Bridge doing it’s draw bridge thing… Drew quite the crowd.
The Tower Of London isn’t horribly tower-ish, but I suppose the standards for towers were a little different in the 11th century.
I wouldn’t want to attack that thing if it was full of archers.
The Tower Bridge again. Pretty gray out, but still, a pretty little day.
Perspective is fun.
Artist selling his shit on the banks of the Thames.
That’s an interesting place for a barber shop.
Pretty sweet little busker.
Apparently the Pride of London is a shitty party cruise.
I think some famous guy used to write plays for this place or something.
There were people all over the banks of the river with metal detectors and looking for clams and shit.
Apparently, the bass player in this little troupe of street entertainers can’t even entertain himself…
Hmmm. A wedding dress and an Australian flag cape. That’s a good look.
Pretty sweet airstream restaurant…
Skate park under the bridge. Right along the river. Pretty cool.
And that about wraps up the day on the river. After a break for a beer or two and some bangers and mash, I had a look around the Parliament Building and Big Ben, so come back soon.
Don’t be a stranger.
