We went outside to photograph the Shard

We found Southwark Cathedral nearby

As we entered this elderly gentleman began telling us about the church building

It has a lovely ornate altar

And some great stained glass windows

This one dedicated to William Shakesphere

He told us the story of Sam Wanamaker an American who raised the money to rebuild the Globe Theatre after it had burned down .

 

The choir began practice while we were there

 

 

 

As it was near lunch time we saw that they had a cafe in the rear of the church .

Your pictures make me want to return to London.  Loved Greenwich too.

 

We usually connect thru and stay in London for a few days before and after a cruise . One thing that we forgot to pack was a wash cloth or 2 . Neither hotel had one .

The Silver Wind was next to the Belfast

And after passing the Tower and it's guard lions we decided to pick up the Big Red Bus

When the bus came a lot of " ladies" came out of the woodwork cutting line , pushing and shoving to grab the few empty seats on the hot bus .

A nice BA club

We flew Club Europe to Copenhagen which means 2 people share 3 seats instead of 2 larger seats shown when booking

Hello scubacruiserx2,

I'm loving the review but I can't view the additional pictures. Only some of them are showing in the body of your posts. I click on the little box with an x and it takes me to Photobucket but the pictures don't show.  Am I doing something wrong? Can anyone tell me what I need to do to see them?

  I am anxious to see the rest of your great pictures!

Thanks,

Nancy

Hi Nancy . It looks OK on our windows desktop and Apple Laptop . What type of device are you using ? My wife said that it is loading slowly on her older ipad so maybe the photo files are too large for your device . We don't see an X so maybe someone else more tech savvy can help .

Hmmmmm.......I'm using a one year old HP desktop PC with Windows 10.  I tried Microsoft Edge, Chrome and Firefox and still only get some of your pictures.  The links take me to Photobucket website, but not pictures. Rats!

 

Thanks anyway, I'll keep trying.

I have the same issue. Some pics show fine. Others simply show their web address.

Interesting!  At least we know it's not just our computers.  I'll let you know if I get it resolved.

Sorry about that . We're also using windows 10 and Chrome . But my wife's ipad is showing some photos  and some icons that link to photobucket . I'll try posting fewer photos each post .
