Monday's Memories: London Bridge

London Bridge was a little underwhelming for a bridge I've heard sung about my whole life.  But I don't think it's the original, so we'll give London Bridge a break.

I wanted to get my picture made here, but I wasn't pushy enough.  Other tourists kept jumping up there, so I gave up on it.

Underwhelming or not, we were still at London Bridge, so I wasn't complaining.  I will say that walking along the River Thames that day reminded me of Dickens', Our Mutual Friend.  You know the men that pulled the dead bodies out of the water?  That's gruesome, I know, but we all know I've read too many books set in Victorian London.
