Sunday and the Tate Modern again!

More exploring.  Sunday morning I went to St. Paul's Cathedral for church.  It is beautiful.  Unfortunately the observatory on the roof is currently closed, but was probably going to be freezing out there anyways.  I then headed to the Museum of London, which chronicles the cities history from ancient times.  Very interesting and full of excited children.  Most random fact: shoes used to be made for either foot, there was no left or right shoe.

Then I went on to the Tate Modern as I hadn't had my fill on Friday night.  It was a lot more crowded.  Turns out that there are not many children at a museum at 9:30pm on a Friday compared to a Sunday afternoon.  I fortified myself with tea and cookies while gazing out at the Thames from the top floor cafe.

After the Tate Modern closed I walked back across the Millennium bridge to catch the tube home.  Overall a successful weekend exploring London.
