Day 3 - London and Greenwich

Our third day of the trip, and our second in London. We started out with our first real British Breakfast at Tower Hill - left Matt and David inspecting the "mega-breakfast": chips, sausage, egg, beans. Erm... yummy?

Our Beefeater Tour of the Tower of London: As usual, the Yeoman Warder was a great storyteller, and the tour was very enjoyable. This time around, we had the only Beefeater who was from the Navy - a retired Royal Marine.

After the Tower, the group went off down the Thames by boat to Greenwich, where they saw the National Maritime Museum and Royal Observatory. Jerry, Charlie and I took the train to King's Cross, where we found that the ham radio hand-held I had lost on the Cambridge train was at the Lost and Found (a major miracle), and then went on to pick up our rental cars at Heathrow. After a two-hour drive which is best left undescribed, we took the train back into London and met the group at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre.

We had Groundling tickets - leaning on the stage
The performance of Romeo and Juliet at the Globe was great, although standing for three or four hours was a bit wearying. As we left the Globe, St. Paul's was on view across the Thames.
