An Unexpected Adventure

Surprise!
So what do you get when you plan a bus tour around London and you don't know that it is both London Pride weekend and the weekend when Taylor Swift is performing in Hyde park. Well you get the following adventures:

1.  Screaming fans. That's me when I realize we've just walked into an outdoor rock concert at Hyde park. I had to take a selfie with my adolescent girls when we heard riptide being performed by Vance Joy. I just can't believe it.

2.  A family photo outside of Buckingham palace. The most tame moment of the day. We toured the palace mews which was fabulous and well worth the visit just to see the coronation carriage. I forgot to attach these photos and instead have inserted here a photo in front of St. Paul's cathedral. Whoops.

Photo Bombed
3.  Being photo bombed by three complete strangers on the millennial bridge. These guys were too funny. There was a general sense of merriment in the city today.

4.  A holey shoe. London streets were basically shut down today because of the Pride parade which made for a lot of walking. We didn't figure that out until after 5 pm as we were struggling to find any bus running through the centre. Not a one. Hard to do a double decker bus tour without a bus. The streets were however pedestrian heaven. Got to walk down the middle of reagent street and the Strand. That doesn't happen every day.

5.  Finally you get really tired feet.

Unexpected adventure. I'll guess we'll take the bus tour another time.
