It has been a couple of years since I had a good old mooch around London ... and yesterday we did the 'total tourist thing' and spent the day wandering around and enjoying the fact it wasn't raining!
we managed to catch some of The Changing of the Guard at Horse Guards Parade ...
we were wanting to call in at Buckingham Palace, but the tickets to go in had sold out by 9.10am!! ..... ahh well something to do next year!
we had lunch in St James Park ...
I had forgotten how many birds there are there ...
we then wandered along to The London Eye passed Big Ben.
I have been up before, but its always fun to do and we were SO pleased it wasn't raining ...
we booked for a boat ride along the Themes too, but had an hour to wait so filled in our time but having a cup of tea (of corse!!) and watching the street performers along the South Bank ... some of them were brilliant!!
the boat trip was great fun, the guide was really funny and I learned a lot about London ;)
The Tower of London
St Paul's Cathedral
it was such a lovely day out and dilly-dog had a lovely relaxing day with Gran ;)
We spent a couple of days at Gran's ... she has been feeding a fox that comes into her garden every evening at dusk and I managed to snap a picture of it through the window ... Dilly loved going around the garden and weeing wherever she could smell it!!
