The South Bank, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, London Eye and More

Continuing with Day Three of my trip to London in July.  Wow, has it already been nearly two months since I came back?  How time flies?

Okay, fast rewind back to that day. We went for a walk all the way from our hotel – The Trafalgar – to the South Bank.  It was a lovely walk, it drizzled just a tiny bit at one time, and other than that it was nice and warm – perfect weather for a walk. Do you know that London is a fabulous place to take a walk?  Oh, the parks, the sightseeing, and the architecture!  This is some of what we saw as we got closer.

The London Eye – isn’t it lovely?

Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament – aren’t they just magnificent?

I don’t know what the name of the castle or palace type building is so I’ll just call it “Beautiful Palace”

Fancy a ride, you could go on this carousel or the London Eye which you might see if you look closely at the picture.

Fancy a walk?  London is a terrific place for taking walks.  Oh, how I would love to be taking a walk there right now!

So, we left the bubbles to get closer to our ultimate destination – the London Eye.

Now, we are getting closer to the London Eye
