Today could best be described as the Tower Bridge Day, although, ironically, we didn't actually go there.
The Tower Bridge was on a short list of things planned for the day, but we ended up spending the entire day at the Tower of London, where Anna took photos of the Tower Bridge from a distance and at every possible angle. (It seems clear that we are not going to visit all the sites we intended during this trip!)

The Tower of London is actually an old village consisting of many towers, which were often used as prisons, although they weren't originally intended as such.

On the walk home, I couldn't resist taking a photo of this beautiful espaliered magnolia tree just around the corner from our hotel. It is incredible!
And Little Miss Anna has been very good about wrapping up her days by writing in her journal.
