On day 3 we woke up unbelieving we were in London. We quickly headed out for breakfast before doing some sightseeing.
We walked around the city for a bit before heading out to Buckingham Palace.
We wanted to see the Changing of the guards but so did everyone else.
There were many police officers doing crowd control. Can you see all the tourist in the background?
We enjoyed the the Coldsteam Guards Band march by us.
We also enjoyed the drawings of some local children who were learning about their country.
We ended seeing very little of the actual changing of the guards ceremony but we did enjoy the band and we saw the guards at the Guards Museum.
Across the street from the Guards Museum is St. James’s Park. It’s a beautiful park where you can spend a day just laying out watching the clouds pass by.
We strolled hand in hand throughout the park. It was magical!
After our stroll in the park we walked around some more.
We walked until we saw the London Eye and the Thames River.
We saw the Clock Tower and Big Ben. We couldn’t have asked for a better day since the weather was amazing and the locals were charming.
