I found this to be a bit more typical of the crowds at the baths on my two excursions over the last two years.
(snip...that didn't work out in posting the image...)
Okay, let's just say you couldn't move about for all the crowds.

It was a nice cottage.
Paul helping to keep the stones upright in Avebury.
Let me guess. The next photo looks simaler to the above but has the stone on its side with a pair of feet sticking out.
On the a serius note that Stonehenge picture looks suprisingly desolate - what did you use to scare the touriststs away?

I suspect Paul tried to summon a Byakhee just to prove that you can't summon a Byakhee.
what did you use to scare the touriststs away?

If you like big piles of dirt, you should come visit the Midwest, we've got some nice Indian mounds, glacial formations... and uh... um... stuff?
Glad you had a great vacation.
Huge big pile of chalk and quite amazing.

Helen and I are off to "The Big Smoke" (aka London) for a Birthday break as I'm 20 for the second time round.
Lots of sightseeing planned, Gaslight & "Jack the Ripper" tours and museum exhibitions, dining at the Ritz and likely a trip to Leisure Games, Forbidden Planet, and apparently wool shop.
All followed by a trip on the overnight sleeper train to Glasgow for a bit of Scottish air!
We should be back by next Thursday (16th Oct.), keep an eye out for updates on the YSDC Twitter account!

Glad to see Helen is diverting the trip to a wool shop.

Helen and I now both have our phones enabled for Twitter updating, so we'll see what happens, though this time I don't expect to be drinking Helen's still warm Bath water!
Yes we thought that was a little strange but we were to polite to say anything about it. (Cabin Fever setting in allready?)

It was always a fun stop for taking photos. It's now been turned into a Theatre ticket shop.
...Let's just say that the road it's on leads directly into Soho. I'll leave it to your imagination as to exactly what sort of "Lovecraft" they were purveying. It was a respectable looking bookshop on the top floor, but the basement... . I'm sure neither Paul nor Helen had any idea, though.
Here's a few photos we did take:
Egyptian themed escalator in Harrods.
Fortnum & Mason.
Fortnum & Mason ground floor interior.
Fortnum & Mason Hampers!
Fortnum & Mason Hamper section. "How much for this year's 'Snow Queen' hamper?" - "A snip at Â£25,000, sir."
Ever more Hampers!
Puttin' on the Ritz!
Ritz Birthday Cake, served at Afternoon Tea.
We had a wonderful time!

Easy ways to see if I'm elsewhere (so to speak): I'll try and update my sig. and Lovecraftiana enters a period of slumber...
