Jeebus, it's cold!

We're having a great time in London, but somebody needs to turn up the thermostat! The combination of damp weather (actual rain today but just damp yesterday) and cold air has been cutting right through us.

Anyhow, we've been having a lot of fun. I've had limited opportunities for photos, but that's okay. It still has been fun seeing lots of sights. You really get the sense that this is, as Eddie Izzard has said, "where the history comes from."

This morning, we saw The Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace. Interestingly, they don't actually get changed when this happens. Such a disappointment! ;) Instead, one group of guards arrives and another leaves. That was fun.

We spent time on a tour bus, seeing lots of sights. We stopped at St. Paul's Cathedral. Very impressive.

Last night, we met up with Bob for drinks and then coffee. That was nice, We haven't seen him in ages, so that was very nice, and he's a terrific guy.

Tomorrow, we may go to Windsor. Not certain yet, but that's possible. Whatever we do, I'm sure it will be a wonderful day. Even in this nasty weather, we've been having a great time!

Did you climb up to the top of the dome at St. Paul's? That was one of the scariest things I have ever done, but the view was worth it. Those staircases though...ay, don't look down! PS, mmmm, British accents.

I love London in the winter...more authentic, fewer tourists. Have a blast!
