We spent some time walking our little feet off till our legs ached during the day. Don't know how we stayed awake since we had arrived at Heathrow at a little after 5am. Staying in Victoria so we aren't far from many tourist attractions.
Many pubs and eating places are beautifully adorned with hanging baskets of colourful blooms (real flowers too) plus window displays making them very eye-catching. Here's one such pub across the road a wee bit. It made walking the streets so much more enjoyable and the perfume from some was most delightful.
Seems that if there was space for a car then it was okay to park your vehicle, no matter which direction it was facing. Would be quite illegal in Australia. Parking was on one side of the street only, but note the direction of the vehicle in the middle. This was not a one of instance.
Here are some snaps of some of the places we visited today.
I walked right across Westminster Bridge and snapped Parliament House from midway. You can tell what a dull day the weather offered. We actually were quite cold walking around, went back to the hotel for our coats and umbrella. Visited a few other tourist attractions too and even a few shops.
The blonde in the middle with her back to you is my friend Liz taking a photo of the gates to Buckingham Palace. The State Rooms are open to the public for tours for a short time this month so we may have to return. We saw a real life Palace Guard, but we just missed the changing of the Guards.
More images as regularly as I can, so please return often and follow our travels.
