Taking advantage of a free day we decided to cross a few things off our to-do list starting with the changing of the guards. There were crowds of people gathered around the Buckingham Palace all just waiting to see the guards. If there were that many people there then, I cannot imagine how it was during the Royal wedding. Unbelievable.
After that we picked up sandwiches and headed to Hyde Park for a picnic. The weather was so nice that we had no choice but to enjoy it. It's a rare occasion that we didn't hit rain once! We all sat in the grass enjoyed our food and company and of course took lots of pictures.
Next stop was the London Eye. This giant ferris wheel gave us the perfect view of London. It was definitely worth the long wait sitting in line.
After that it was the perfect time for an afternoon tea. We went to Harrods, London's famous department store and enjoyed scones, cakes, and vanilla tea. It was fabulous. I enjoyed every single sip.
We didn't have much time at Harrod's because we had to catch the 7:00 show for Cantina. I have to go back before I leave to do some shopping! I cannot leave London without at least ONE purchase from there. :) Cantina was an awesome circus show that had me literally on the edge of my seat. After we went out for dinner and drinks which lead to dancing the night away to some classic 90s.
A day totally dedicated to having fun, and that is just what we did. We only have a week left here and we are going to live it up!
