Daily Picture - 50

Fascinating day yesterday at the Tower of London in the afternoon followed by the a really special opportunity to watch the Ceremony of Keys.  Every night for nearly 700 years the Yeoman Warders have performed the gate closing ceremony, it has never been cancelled and has only been delayed once and that was during the Second World War because of bombing.
Finishing with the last post on the bugle the ceremony is timed to the minute.  A superb aspect of British history, followed by views of a floodlit Tower Bridge, which I had last seen whilst kayaking underneath.
