MISS ME? (part 1)

07Aug09

Thought so. Have been in London for the past few days with spotty internet access- in the Cotswalds now with great internet access. Who knew? Anyway, it was my first time in London and I loved it. SO much history but also such a modern and well designed city. Here are a few “design highlights”: (mostly London but also included are a couple taken today in the Cotswalds…)

Tower of LondonDetail at the Tower of London complex, though I think from the restoration work done in the 1800’s under Queen Victoria as the “V R” was her insignia.

Millenium BridgeMillenium Bridge, which opened 2 months late in June of 2000, was closed 3 days later for modifications and reopened in February of 2002.

Garden Cafe at Buckingham PalaceSummer opening of the Staterooms at Buckingham Palace.
