I was surprised to see this guard make eye contact.   (Click for Large)

I really like this uniform of the Yeomen Warders, also known as Beefeaters, with the Elizabeth II Regina symbols (Queen Elizaeth II).   (Click for Large)
Yeomen are drawn from retired members of the British Army, Royal Marines and Royal Air Force with a rank of at least sergeant and 22 years or more experience.
There are about 4 vacancies a year, filled by the Lord Chamberlain, who recommends the names to the Sovereign.

Interesting courtyard, White Tower on the left.

Smaller apartments in a row which includes Queen's House, on right out of view.

Beefeater man walked around the same courtyard we did.

At center is part of a crumbling Roman wall.  It butts against Wakefield Tower.  (Click for Large)

Waterloo Block clock.   (Click for Large)

To the right of the canon is the remains of Wardrobe Tower.

Statue of girl and dolphin at the Tower of London pier was created by sculptor David Wynne in 1973 .

Same statue from sunny side.   (Click for Large)

Rainbow on our return to Westminster pier.

Statue of Boudicca with Parliament (Westminster Castle) skyline behind.   (Click for Large)

Maddie plopped onto the living room couch when we arrived back at our rented flat.   (Click for Large)
