River Thames

This is a shot taken of the River Thames in Richmond (London). We took a nice long leisurely walk along the river and watched the Canadian geese and Swans paddling around.

I can't iamgine ever growing tired of the architecture in London. There is so much to see aside from the usual Big Ben and St. Pauls. Small historic buildings dot the banks of the river. We went into a pub the other day on the river called the White Cross (very near the spot where this photo was taken). Seemingly it was built on an old Roman road and the building has been there before they began keeping records. It was a frequent watering hole for William the Orange. So much history to digest and so little time.
