london 16 may 2009

Our adventure today included a trip to the Tower of London.  The Tower of London is the embodiment of what I always envisioned a castle looking like when I was a little girl.  I think the Pup was impressed.


It is always a little surreal to think about people you've read about or studied actually living and functioning in such a setting.  

The Tower of London is hosting a brilliant exhibit on Henry VIII. I think many of us find old King Henry an intriguing fellow.  My last foray with Henry was in the movie The Other Boleyn Girl, based on the book by Philipa Gregory.  The movie starred Eric Bana as Henry. 

While Bana plays a dreamy King Henry, the real one was not quite so yummy.

However, no doubt about it, Henry's life was filled with the stuff movies are made of!
