    All that history, then the kayaks. Nice series of pictures.
    I got the firefighter picture with a longish lens. The fire was at a house in my neighborhood so I was able to get there while the action was still hot, so to speak.

    Wow, what beautiful pictures! I love the last shot of the cathedral with the bright blue sky.

  19. Another part of London that I love wandering around at. I wouldn’t mind trying out some cannoning along the River Thames, that looks like it would be good fun…

    Beautiful cathedral. I loved seeing old buildings in London and always fascinated by the details and story behind those buildings, it’s something that hardly to be found around here.

    Thank you for the Southwark tour and blog of the week honors!!! I seem to recall I visited a Golden Hinde replica as a kid during a school field trip. I wonder if it is the same one, but it was in San Francisco.

    love the architecture! I wish they’d make buildings nowadays that ornate, much more pleasant to the eyes than the strip malls we see everywhere…
