"We're just soooo lucky! Thank-you!"
Dolphin Hotel. Back then it was possible to stay in guest rooms (when available) which were only 55 pounds per night for the 2 of us. Guest rooms, are rooms for guests who are 'usually' visiting guests at the hotel. AH! its hard to explain.
Dolphin Hotel located in Dolphin Square. A five star hotel.
A beautiful place to stay.
BRAHMS restaurant, not to far from the hotel. Great! Try the Tiramisu.
"Tower of London"
Where the crown jewels are kept.
Just some random pics.
Eros - in the upper right hand corner of the pic.
I think in Pilladicky Circus (that is what I called it in 1974, the first time that I visited. If I recall correctly, we were purchasing tickets for the tube, underground trains, when I had a slip of the tongue.) They probably called me a picaninny? I wonder what that is? Webster's dictionary just says its a noun.
Correct name is: Piccadilly Circus - a traffic circle and open square in London: theater and amusement (per Webster's)
WHOOPs! Sorry. I should have used Oxford. Great, I look in Oxford , and there is no Piccadilly.
Go Figure? They do have a piccalilli. or is it, pick a lilly?
piccalilli: a pickle of chopped vegetables, mustard, and hot spices
Also piccaninny [is that me?}
piccaninny: "I do not like their first def., so the second is, "very small"
So Oxford has words close to 'Piccadilly' but does not actually have the word. So, it's 'nowunder' (my own word) that I said pilladicky in 1974!
"The War Room's"
I think where Winston Churchill stayed during
World War 2.
"Changing of the Guard"
Oh Oh! this is where the Bobby picked us up (or did he?), too many pics in our traveloque. I think he may be a relative of ours.
One more pic, quick, of the Changing of the Guard.
We were given a Special Tour. here's a few last pics, before we headed home.
If I kept taking pic.'s like this, I might think that I was a photographer. Just kidding. No tripod.
