London Part III
We spent the day in search of a nice park to lay out, soak up the sun and rest our aching feet. So we set out for St. James Park—a beautiful park in the middle of London, between the Horse Guards Parade and Buckingham Palace—with the plan of seeing both places on the way. Margot roamed through the Horse Guards Parade, shuffling her feet through the tiny little pebbles as we made our way to a big open field next to a duck pond. We hung out, snacked, and mapped out our way to Buckingham Palace. The leaves were just starting to turn colors, making for beautiful walks through the park.
For the sake of cohesiveness, I've also tacked on photos from our visit to the Tower of London and the Tower Bridge, which we actually toured on our second leg in London after our time spent in Amsterdam and Paris. Margot was just getting over a really bad cold/flu that started in Paris, so her patience at this point was pretty thin. We signed up for a walking tour, but she unfortunately couldn't stand still, so she and I decided to roam around by ourselves while Matt stayed back on the tour. We collected leaves and walked the cobblestone paths, stopping every so often to sit and take her photo. She especially loved watching the Crown Jewels' guards as they walked back and forth—she'd run away every time he'd walk back towards her. I think she thought he was teasing her...it was pretty cute. We wanted to get all of the touristy stuff done that we hadn't on our first run in London, so we made sure to walk the Tower Bridge before heading home. Our next stop—Brighton Beach.
