What the heck? (Nice sweater too!) Turns out we were just in time for the changing of the guard. Which we didn't even realize. lol!
If you look carefully, you'll see the horse guards. ?? Is that what they are?
We crossed the road and ended up seeing this.
We got closer to the palace after all the hubbub.
Everything was so pretty!
Next, we headed to......
Big Ben!! And the Houses of Parliament.
With the London Eye right there across the river!
We went to Westminster Abbey, where you weren't allowed to take pictures inside.
The father type said his finger slipped a couple of times.
What a thrill to see Poet's Corner where so many of my favorites are either buried or commemorated! Charles Dickens was my first and favorite British author. And Handel was right there too! And yes, that's Rudyard Kipling. Too many names to mention -- so amazing! (Yes, those are my feet.)
And who knew that Queen Elizabeth I and Queen Mary are buried one on top of the other? I bet they love that! lol!
We looked at Golden Jubilee Bridge.
And wandered over to Trafalgar Square too.
Oh, and here is an entrance to a tube station. They pretty much all had these escalators/stairways.
And I think that's it for day 2!
