It’s been a while since I posted, mostly due to technical difficulties. I’ve grown so dependent on technology to communicate that when it doesn’t work, I’m hobbled!
We’ve been busy in the last couple of days: a walking tour of Royal London, and an afternoon of beach combing on the Thames at low tide, much as Maggie and Lizzie might have done, looking for anything interesting. I found a clay pipe stem and a fossil of a starfish, which wouldn’t have interested them at all, but pleased me. Couldn’t keep them, though … There’s a bacteria in the water that’s fatal and the guide had us wear rubber gloves to do our muck raking (see where that word comes from?). I got a bit spooked and left my plunder for the river.

Sounds like you had a great time, despite the bacteria… There is a lot to explore in London and I hope you continue to have a great time there.
Of possible interest to you…
Thank you so much for the lovely review! I’m glad you enjoyed the book and hope to see you again on the adventure! London was marvelous and I was able to get good pictures of various locations in Lady of Devices. Alas, I couldn’t go on the Jack the Ripper tour of Whitechapel … something to look forward to next time.
