London – Day 1

London – Day 1

We were up early this morning – the sun rises here before 5am – yikes.  Rich went to the gym for a short time and I went meandering through Regent’s Park – you’ll see below how beautiful it is – especially on such a lovely day.

Rich and I caught up with one another and headed out to the Kensington Gardens.  We had heard the garden was especially redone this spring in honor of Princess Diana and the anniversary of her death.  Here are a few pictures of the very elegant but understated garden.

 

Before heading out to lunch we passed by the Prince Albert Memorial in Kensington Gardens.  It’s rather a unique tribute to the Prince and stands directly in front of the Royal Albert Hall.

We also enjoyed the Victoria and Albert Museum which is enormous.  There was art from around the world.

 

To end my post for today, I pay tribute to the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band – celebrating its 40 year anniversary and the topic of the BBC news this morning.
