Sunday, May 12. No pictures today.

We arrived at Heathrow early Sunday morning, and after getting to the Posthouse and meeting Bruce and Brenda for coffee in the morning at the hotel, followed by a short nap, we took the bus/tube to London and visited the Victoria and Albert Museum, where we took in a photograph exhibit and also the antique musical instruments exhibit.

The photo exhibit included the famous Christine Keeler studio session. Keeler, you may recall, was the "mistress" of politician Anthony Profumo in a scandalous episode of its day. She was photographed nude but hidden by her chair, in a compromise between her modesty and contractual obligations. You'll see later why we are explaining this.

Next day we had a (rainy) ride down to the south of England.
