I went to London and saw the Queen

One of our first stops in London was Buckingham Palace. When we got there we noticed that the Windsor flag was flying, which means the Queen is in residence. We watched the changing of the guard and while we were waiting to cross the road in front of the palace we saw the Queen. She drove by in a Range Rover and wasn't more than 20 feet away from us. I'm a fan of Queen Elizabeth II and was thrilled to get to see her. Even if it was just for a couple of seconds. :) And seconds after she drove by the Windsor flag was changed for the Union Jack. We guessed that she was off for Widsor Castle. (Which we visited later in the week.) It was an exciting start to a tremendously exciting vacation.

I cannot exagerate what a wonderful time we had in London. It was the perfect trip. We saw most of the major sights, ate super yummy food, attended some excellent concerts and theater productions, and soaked in every single moment.

Stay tuned for more pics!!
