Crossing one of the most famous roads in the world!

On August 8, 1969, John, Paul, George and Ringo walked across this crosswalk to create the iconic Abbey Road album cover.  On June 25, 2011, George and Sherri did the same.  I am wearing the Beatles t-shirt that Mike Schutt gave to me and I remembered to talk off my shoes, just like Paul.  It was a Saturday and there were dozens of people there at Abbey Road.  Some groups literally held up traffic as they tried to get their own replica of Abbey Road album cover.  Valuing our lives, we waited until traffic let us cross the street legally.  Our photo was taken by a 20 something American who was spending the summer taking classes in London.  She was like so many others we met on our trip - not even born when Beatlemania took the world by storm and yet totally into the music and creativity of the Beatles.  Yeah, yeah, yeah!
