London by foot.

Another slow start to the day today. We are tired! We're still catching up after our 18 days non-stop in Turkey.
We have had sun this morning - quite unexpected. So we decided to make today our "out and about" day. We caught the bus and the Underground to Trafalgar Square - and from there we walked what felt like all over London.
The London Eye - that was pretty good - a slick operation, and good value. We were lucky to have sunshine while we were up in the air, so that was a bonus for us. There were great views from the top - I would think the best in London.
Westminster Bridge, The Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey. Would you believe - the entrance fee to Westminster Abbey is £17 pounds? We decided to admire it from the outside. I just don't get that. The British Museum is free admission - and you're there all day. Not impressed!
Anyhow, on we walked - past St James Park - how beautiful! So green and gorgeous flower beds. We eventually found the Temple Church - it was featured in the Da Vinci Code movie. It was hiding in the middle of buildings in the Fleet Street area, but unfortunately by the time that we got there, it was closed. Maybe next time.
Throughout the afternoon the weather went fairly quickly downhill to the point that it was raining quite consistently. Definitely 4 seasons in one day today. We got back on the Underground and then on to our now familiar bus back to Camden - wet and tired, but a really good day today.
