The last few days have been low-key – mainly. we walked around the city, checked things out, did some shopping, ate, people watched, rode the bus and, according to Stan’s pedometer, we have walked a lot of miles! London has grown on me and I feel right at home.
I have also enjoyed our little apartment. It has been so nice to stay put and get comfortable. It’s a great feeling to walk out the front door and KNOW where you are. Stan is so handy with his iPhone and he can get us ANYWHERE on a bus or a train. I am so spoiled! Thank you, Stan!
One of the challenges about being here has been getting used to traffic flowing on the “wrong” side of the road! Twice I started to step into on-coming traffic because I was looking in the wrong direction! It is very disorienting at first, but now I have gotten used to it. It also helps that, “LOOK LEFT”, or “LOOK RIGHT” is painted on the street at cross-walks! I suppose they must have a lot of accidents involving tourists. Thank God I wasn’t one of them.
Here are a few shots I have taken along the way – of nothing in particular – just so I can remember the city.
Nice tile walkway.

Potted plants and flowers everywhere.

He just looked like the typical English dude right down to his shoes.
This “Sun” sculpture is by Dale Chihuly. It is made of more than 1,300 hand-blown glass elements, is 14 feet high and weighs 4,230 lbs. It is illuminated every night. I shot the daytime photo and I pulled the night-time shot off the internet. It was amazing!

Here are some shots of the apartment. So cute!

My black and white bedroom, of course!
Tomorrow (Wednesday) we leave London and take a train to Paris. Looking forward to seeing Paris again.
