Today wasn’t the brightest of days in old London Town, but the skyline never fails to delight. No matter how long I live in this green and pleasant land, I will never get past the thrill of getting off the train, turning the corner, and seeing the Tower of London up ahead. You know you’re in London when you see this in front of you:
And this famous weathervane high atop Trinity House behind you:
We were celebrating a birthday with a yarn crawl, visiting the best yarn shops our capitol has to offer. En route we caught glimpses of famous landmarks like the London Eye:
And modern labyrinths decorating the walls of the tube stations (like this one in Waterloo station):
Following our quest, we braved the escalator at Angel tune station which used to be the longest in the world (it is now the fourth longest in western Europe):
Did we find our yarn? This smile says it all:
Happy birthday to the other American in the village!
