We took the 24 bus to Trafalgar Square and walked across the Square to the National Gallery. We entered the small building on the left and followed Rick Steves self-guide.

The National Gallery is magnificent. We took the time to go through every room. My favorites were the impressionists. All of the paintings are significant. I love Monet. I also like the High and Italian Renaissance.

We were tired when we finished. It was late lunch time. We walked across the street to St. Martin-in-the-Fields Crypt Restaurant which is downstairs in the church. They have excellent food and comfortable tables with inexpensive prices. We lingered over the meal and had an excellent cafe americano decaf.

Today was a rain day. It rained all day. It didn’t slow us down. We had another great day in London. We got back to our flat about 3:30pm just before the rain accelerated to drenching.

I had to finish my 10,000 steps which I did tonight after dinner.
