Our time in London is coming to a close. We spent a wonderful day today checking out the Tower of London, just for Erica!! It was lots of fun...and lots of walking. We started out by going to Buckingham Palace to see the changing of the guards, the only thing is, they said, "We're not changing, not gonna happen!" So we took lots of pictures while we were there, and said hello to the queen....

We then ran off to the Tower of London, where we had a most entertaining Beefeater to guide us. We saw the Crown Jewels, which we couldn't take pictures of, and Sir Walter Raleigh's room, which we could.

Soon the day was drawing to a close and we set off for the underground to go back to our hotel. We ate at a little French restaurant, Cafe Rouge. It was right on the water, and we sat outside to eat, since the weather was so pleasant.

Randy had a salmon tart of some sort, almost a quiche, and I had quiche lorraine. Both were really good.

Once we got back to our hotel, we arranged for a cab to Stansted airport. What a mistake that was! We were told it would be about 90 pounds, but it ended up being 151 pounds, about $300.00 American. Ouch!!

Well, now it's off to Athens, and the St. Thomas Bed and Breakfast.
