Buckingham Palace

Though we were unable to be there this morning, we were in London at  Buckingham Palace in May of 1997 to see the changing of the Guard. It was part of a 10-Country Globus tour of Europe. We took our daughter and granddaughter along and had a great time. We met the tour in London after having gone several days early to spend time with a Cousin of Elaine's and his wife in Norwich. While we were wating for the Guard to change, we had the thrill of seeing the Queen ride by in a big black car after her helicopter had been overhead. We didn't hear the story on the goat but assumed it was the mascot of the guard unit.

  1. That was a great trip, Dad! The royal wedding brought back a lot of good memories of being there. I wonder if our invitations got lost in the mail . . .
