You've seen these before

In every collection of pictures of London you have seen the Houses of Parliament there nexst to the River Thames.
Westminster Abbey nearby.
Big Ben









When you visit London, be sure to include a day that is not on the weekend. Westminster Abbey, St. Paul's Cathedral, and some other sites are closed on Sunday. If you do not plan carefully, you will find yourself settling for the magnificent exterior views as we did.











But that's good, too. And a good excuse to come back again some day.

Architecture is always good for Geometry Monday.

What kind of church is closed on Sundays?

I had no idea you were in London. What a missed opportunity. Glad you were able to make the most of it all though.

What a great close-up of Big Ben!

Closed to tourists, Jeff. You can go to church services.

And Novel, I tried finding an e-mail for you. We would have liked to have looked you up, but I hadn't seen you on T-net for a while and couldn't find your blog again. But believe me, if we at all can, we'll be back.

wow...wonderful! I'm looking through all the posts, but probably won't comment on each one. This trip must be fantastic!
