London I am here!

Well now that you have followed the journey here I will tell you what I have been up to.  Since I have been to London several times I have not been to some of the usual local sites to check out.  Being here at St. Katherine’s Docks has been great as we are right by the Tower of London and the Tower bridge.

Here we are at sundial right by docks 1st night. Tower Bridge in background and Jen up front.

One day I will learn to take selfies.  Just give me time to come into the present generation.

Ok, this is for Sylvia, George and Kat. A huge reminder of Urban 15. They are a Brazilian group that circled the harbor area as part of the opening entertainment

The weather was awesome this past weekend and it has been raining since Monday which has slowed down the work I can do as I need to have some dry to make goopy stuff and tape stick to surfaces.

Have been fortunate to be able to visit with two Judson exs, Christina G. and Anais C. and their husbands while here.  What is with clarinetists that marry and run off to London?

Was happily surprised when Christina showed up at the docks with a friend from work.  Had the fun of showing her the boat.  She returned later with her husband Ed and brother in law.  Then met up with Anais and her husband Alistair.  Saturday was fun with both and Ed as we went to Spitafields for lunch. It is like a high end Mercado in SA.  Laughter is great and we had plenty of it.

St. Katherine’s Docks are just to the left of us so really great to be staying right by history!

OK, off to work.  NBC is filming us today.  Yesterday they filmed part of the TEAM pole dancing.  Was great fun!  Yes, we will do just about anything.
