While on vacation, a few eyeopening days in London!!!!

We had only two days in this huge city, to see just a couple of things that we thought would be interesting to us , so we picked the Tower of London and the double-decker buses that would let us get on and off whenever we wanted…….The weather that day was cool but very nice and reminded us of being back in the Northwest……. I could easily come back there for a few weeks..so much to see and experience……….
