July 31 2011 - last day of Jeni's trip - London - the Palace

LONDON - JENI'S LAST DAY

sunny 25 °C

Another lovely day, so we took a short tube-ride to Green Park with the idea of walking through that park and on into St James' Park. As we approached Buckingham Palace we could hear a large band playing the themes from James Bond movies; it turned out that we had stumbled across the "Changing of the Guard" which Jeni has never seen. All great fun and surprisingly not too crowded. We're not sure why they don't just do away with the "Old Guard" with all the trouble they cause

Next was a lazy Sunday afternoon in St James' Park, waiting for a brass band to start playing in bandstand; they never did

For Jeni's last evening, we thought we'd stroll around our apartment's area (Fitzrovia) and have a couple of quiet drinks in one of the many local pubs - well it was quiet alright as just about everything was shut
