After the walk through St James Park, we got to Buckingham Palace. We did not get to speak to the queen because she is on holiday, but she did open the royal state rooms for us while she was away. Sorry, no pictures allowed in the state rooms L

 

 

The changing of the guards is full of pomp and ceremony, so we fit right in.

 

Chris got tired after the long day of walking around the city and took a nap in the park!

 

 

But, nothing like an English afternoon tea, complete with finger sandwiches, scones and pastries to revive us for the rest of the day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The headlines in the paper this day was about the “pervs” in Trafalgar Square taking pics up the tourists skirts. Luckily Carolyn was not wearing her dress this day.

 

 

 

Carolyn and her pussy cats.

 

 

Well we ran up to Piccadilly and Oxford Circus’ and down the Carnaby street market, and took the tube home to Fulham where our B&B is located. We are looking forward to a “locals” day of shopping at Harrods and raising a pint at the Youngs brewery tomorrow.
