London Bridge Isn’t in London and Other Fun Facts

Day 2 began with more traditionally touristy adventures, a cruise along the Thames River and a visit to the Tower of London and Tower Bridge.  I like boats (well I am really partial to sail boats) but the major motivation was that we were trying to see how many of the London Pass features we could use.
