The End is Nigh!

Our last 2 days dawned! Our own beds beckoned but it was still hard to think our wonderful trip was coming to an end. Wednesday again saw the Fab Four split into two. Keith and Kathy headed to Windsor Castle and they exclaimed afterwards, "that was well worth it" a statement regularly used on our holiday! Meryl and Glenn followed in Keith's footsteps and went to the War Cabinet Rooms and also enjoyed the Charles Dickens museum, the Portrait Gallery and the National Gallery. On Wednesday night our cousin and his wife who are presently living in Bonn arrived. It was great that we could finish our holiday spending time with Pete and Leigh.

On Thursday we thought we would make the most of every minute and walked all day. Rain meant some strategic time spent in the Museum of London which we all found most informative and the boys loved our young English guide! We then went to the Bank of England Museum before climbing 311 stairs to the top of The Monument for some great views. With our walking shoes on we strode to the Tower of London, walked over the Tower Bridge, past the Shakespeare Globe and all the way back home. We spent our last night feasting on delicious Indian food and talking!!
