On Tuesday, we headed down to the Tower of London and its pier, where we bought tickets for a nice ride on the Thames. Before the boat ride we wandered around the exterior of the Tower, where many a head was lopped off, back in the day.

Tomorrow we're off to Harrogate for two days. We'll be staying with a French friend of mine whom I haven't seen in fifteen years. I'm really eager to see him, and I LOVE traveling by train, as you recall.
More pictures anon...
