kate5kiwis: London calling at the top of the dial (part three)

“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

London calling at the top of the dial (part three)

We went to the Tower Bridge, London's most famous bridge, which is a tribute to the nineteenth century industrial era. It is still in use today.. raising the road to allow tall ships to pass.. up to fifteen times a day.
We walked along the top rails, rather freaky...
but not as freaky as..


THE MONUMENT..
which is 202 feet tall, and it stands 202 feet from where the Great Fire of 1666 started.
(see I am a history buff)


we climbed up and up (I've really shagged my back) 311 steps to the very tippy top.
*don't look down*


*and then*
I got to go with Em to her wedding dress fitting..
(shhhh, no details yet, except to say that she's gonna look like a fairytale princess)
the dress is divine


Hubby woke me in the middle of the night to say that he could see a fox, just below our bedroom window.. can ya see it?? very cool.
