Tower Bridge and poppies

Here we are in London, nice and early on a beautiful day.
We decided to walk along the Thames, under the Millennium Bridge and slowly close in on Tower Bridge.
We went on the tour, so hopped straight into a lift and up to the horizontal walkways at the top. Amazing views in all directions, particularly towards the Tower of London.
We also went to see the poppy display that surrounds the Tower. It is very impressive, and more poppies are constantly being added.
By November there will be more than 888,000 to commemorate the British people who died 100 years ago in the First World War.
We have a few more days seeing family and friends, then we are off on our travels again, starting in France on Sunday.
