Liz on the Tower Bridge

|Series||Tower Bridge and the Tower of London|
In the shadow of the Tower Bridge lurk delicatessens and other yummy shops, so we poked around in there for awhile to sate that midday belly gurgle, completing the circuit with Starbucks coffee before heading onto the bridge. And here we are.

The Tower of London is a squat, solid-looking fortress that seems sturdy enough to weather a thousand years and as many ancient onslaughts. It would be utterly decimated in a modern military strike and now stands a magnificent museum to the strength and frailty of internecine ties, and the Social Contract.

A walkway ran around the back and we meandered thataway. On this path we passed this statue of Caesar Augustus in his classic pose. Further down we were turned around and shooed away by a Beefeater and this military dude in camouflage fatigues. It must've been pub o'clock.
