Monday was a planned visit to the Victoria and Albert Museum, and the mode of transport was the 'London Buses'....... have to say the journey took longer than we first thought, but what a treat to travel through the city and spot places where we worked in our younger days. The city has change tremendously as well, and spotting roads was not so easy as we thought it would be, but we made it to the the 'V and A' and had a few hours wandering this beautiful building.
Tuesday we again caught the bus and this time headed towards the Tower of London to see the Poppies........ I was amazed and so pleased we got to see them. I take my hat off to the designer of the Poppy sculpture it is very thought provoking......there are 888,246 Poppies, that's one flower for each soldier from Britain or the British colonies who died in WW1.

We had a great 'long' weekend, the weather was kind to us and the sites amazing.
