So, I’m taking a break from working on Black & Blue (Hetheridge #4) to post a few pictures and facts. My London trip isn’t till March 2015, but hey, it’s never too early to start obsessing.
I look forward to seeing the Golden Hinde, a full-size replica of the ship Sir Francis Drake used to circumnavigate the globe in the sixteenth century. I’ve been on such tours before (the USS Constitution, or “Old Ironsides,” and a replica of the Santa Maria) and never fail to enjoy it. Maybe I have a seafarer’s soul.
Madame Tussaud’s doesn’t look like much from the exterior, and it’s supposed to be expensive and touristy, but I still think I’ll go. Below are a couple of the people I’ll see:
I was disappointed to learn (today!) that I can’t visit the Winston Churchill Britain at War Museum. It closed last year. But the collection has been sent elsewhere and I may be able to view most of it at other venues. The Imperial War Museum will be open, of course, and the underground “war rooms.”
