London Eye and walking along the Thames

Marcia, Ella, Rachel, and I enjoyed a sunny day.  Everyone else thought it was a great day to buy tickets to ride the London Eye. Marcia stood in line to buy vouchers, then in another line to convert the vouchers to tickets. Then we approached the line that looked like a two hour wait.  So, off we went to have lunch in hopes that the line would be shorter when we returned. Much to our delight, the line was about half of what it had been.DSCN3242

Unlike a Ferris wheel the capsules were very steady.  There was no sway or movement as function wind or people walking about the capsule.

We walked along the Thames and came open sand sculptures.  The artist had sheets laid out for tourists to toss coins.
