Saturday, June 2, 2018:   Mark and Paula traveled about an hour to London, from Maidenhead, by train and then tube (subway).
They checked in at St. Ermin's Hotel, Autograph Collection.  There is a story about this place to be told later.
The place is elegantly appointed in the lobby and in the rooms.  They charge accordingly.
Lunch at the Blue Boar in London started with a pint of Fuller's London Pride British beer.
That was followed up by English Steak and Eggs with fries.  No dieting this day!   
Paula made friends with a Royal Guard horse while a statue of Winston Churchill looked on.
Artists show their stuff on London streets.
A view in St. James Park with Buckingham Palace and the London Eye in the background.  
St. James Park is a peaceful place.
The Mall that goes from Buckingham Palace to the northeast.
At the end of The Mall is Trafalgar Square.  More on that later.
Thousands of visitors flock to Buckingham Palace each day.
A Royal Guard keeps watch over the Palace.

Quote of the day:    London is a wonderful place.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
