Museum Day: Britian Tate and National Gallery
While Jim was in the museum I also looked at some of the art work and spent time in the gift shop looking for an item that was requested by a good friend. I found them; there were several choices. Tough to make decisions for someone else.
In less then two hours we were back on the street finding our way by the bus system to the National Gallery which is also next to the National Protrait Gallery. But, today, we're only visiting the National Gallery. Jim picked up an audio guide and entered the museum and I left and walked back to the visit Trafalgar Square and then on to the Whitehall where guards on horseback were guarding the entrance. They were mostly there for photo opportunities for the tourists; the real guards were the multiple policemen carrying heavy duty guns at the ready.
When we arrived in Tooting Broadway about four thirty we walked across the street and had another early bird special, this time chicken, the same neighborhood bar that we ate at last night. Another good dinner, then back on the bus and home before six o'clock. It was a good day!
