Sherlock Holmes

If we stayed inside on rainy days, we would never see anything in London! So, "brollies" up and "wellies" on girls!
Another great "London Walks" tour was the Sherlock Holmes walk through the Charing Cross and Covent Gardens area. Our guide was dramatic in his quest for proof that the fictional characters of Holmes and Watson were actually real.

The Scottish author, Sir Authur Doyle's classic literary character was best known for "drawing large conclusions from small observations"....ha! any Mother of teenagers can do that! Were Holmes and Watson more than friends? Did his genius come from his constant drug use? Did he eat fish and chips at this Pub?

Was the character in HOUSE M.D. based on the legendary character Sherlock Holmes? Think about it!
