Our last full day in London! I took off again after breakfast to explore. I took the tube to the other side of the river, then crossed back over Tower Bridge, and walked all around the Tower of London. I didn't go in - even if I'd wanted to, the line was too long. I'd been there, done that (ok, so it was over 20 years ago...) and walking around it was enough. Then I went to the complete north of the city. I'd always been attracted to Hampstead Heath, although never had seen it. (I think I just like the name.) All of a sudden, while riding along in the tube, you're above ground. I had to take a train (same ticket, mind you) to go to the Heath itself, and only wandered a short ways in. Luckily I turned around in time, because as soon as I got back to the train station, it started to pour.
It has stopped raining now, but I think I'm just going to watch old British television (stuff you can't get on the Knowledge Network at home) and/or read until dinner.
We leave for home tomorrow, so the next entry will probably be with pictures, once I wrestle my Mac back from Dianna.
Oh, and The Lion King was great! Especially the costuming and puppetry. I liked the music; D didn't much.
