London's Tower Bridge opens just for me!

well ok, that might be a slight exaggeration :)

A dear friend took me on a cruise along the Thames on a fabulous 
paddle cruiser and all the traffic had to stop on this iconic bridge while it was raised to let our boat pass underneath. What a privilege!

when we returned it was dark so all the buildings (including the Shard on the left) were illuminated...

apologies for the blurry photos, they were taken on my phone on a very wobbly boat but I thought they were worth sharing anyway..

Hope you like!


  1. For phone photos I thought they came out great. I love to see photos of places I know I'll never visit. When I watch HGTV House hunters Intl. I pay more attention to the scenery than I do the homes.
    The night photos were gorgeous. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi! so glad you liked them - it was a big thrill for me. Lots of tourists on the bridge were waving and taking photos, I felt like a film star!!
