free day in london

Still on Canada’s timeclock; couldn’t sleep past 4:00aM.  We managed to grab the Gatwick Express and pulled in London Victoria train station before 8:30am.

We had time to wander through Westminster Cathdreal and gaze in awe at the stunning frescoes before purchasing our SIN card for ipad2.

It was sunny and chilly; perfect weather to wander around Greenich.  This time we checked the art in Queens House.  Most of the artists on show were known for their marine seascapes.  The play of light and detail on one painting caught my attention from across one of the rooms and I drew closer to check out the artist’s name:  James Webb.   I wrote down the his name and title of the amazing painting of this brilliant nineteenth century artist and plan to google him later.

If you’re ever in Greenich you need to check out a restaurant called Frankie and Bennies.  The staff make even an oridinary burger something special and the view of the Thames  offered a relaxing break over lunch.

Tommorrow we face another 4:ooam rise to catch our early flight  out to Bodrum Turkey.
