Thursday took Dad, Mary, Dave & I back into London, where we spent the whole day perusing the Tower of London, an amazing place, with torture chambers, dungeons, old weaponry, and tons of history. Not to mention the Crown Jewels, which were incredible!
Peeking at the Bridge from the Tower
A Royal bedroom recreated
This guard was reluctant to give us directions
Cuddly, cute, and doesn't talk back.... how could I resist??
David & I wanted to take an accurate picture of how post office boxes look like in London ;) See previous post for the real thing!
Part of the Tower of London... impressive!
Artistic gun storage? Who knew?
You'll NEVER guess what this was for...
Suit of armour for a young boy, around 7 or 8... and we think toys today are violent!
Home of the Crown Jewels (which we couldn't photograph... boooo)
The guard outside the building that houses the Crown Jewels
The White Tower, in the centre of the buildings within the walls of the Tower
These guards were all too happy to pose for a Canadian :)
What a cool part of the tower....
Ok so maybe I put in one too many pics of this...
It's bigger than it looks!
A British favourite, soft ice cream with a Flake! (Dad looks a bit greedy ;) )
Tower Bridge again, from the Tower of London
Close up of the Bridge
Dave smack in the middle of Tower Bridge :)

The weird egg shaped thing is London Town Hall, looking from Tower Bridge
Something old, something new... the business district with the Tower of London entrance in the foreground
This place is always crazy busy... Paddington Station, looking from the Underground entrance towards the trains
