Destination of the Week - London...again!!!

Okay it's a little weird to be posting pictures of London in winter when it's summer outside but it's my blog!  I am feeling very homesick for London - two months and one day from today I return but for today I will relive my last trip there.   I realize I did not share any of my photos while there as the internet was a bit wonky.  As everyone who knows me or reads this blog knows I am totally and hopelessly in love with London.  And it's a love that keeps getting stronger all the time.  As far as I am concerned London just keeps getting better and better....for the most part that is...and I can tell you the best thing they ever did was get rid of the waxy toilet paper they used to have in public toilets in the 70's and 80's.  OUCH!!! 

So here's a blast from the past...well January of 2012 anyway...

This was in the city near the Tower of London - a parking meter executioner!
