August 2006 - London, England - The Parks

After returning from our wild weekend, we mustered up the energy to stroll through several parks in London. On our way to the parks we stopped in front of Buckingham Palace (it was the first time Casandra saw the Palace).
After strolling past Buckingham Palace we entered St. James Park. St. James has a great lawn where Londoners lounge, perfectly manicured gardens and a beautiful pond with swans and all kinds of ducks.

That, of course, is Big Ben in the distance.

And, in the distant right (above), is the controversial "London Eye" - a gargantuan ferris wheel from which you can enjoy some of the best views of London. And (below) Big Ben again.

We exited St. James Park and passed in front of Buckingham once again before entering Green Park.We then continued to St. Regents' Park for an outdoor performance of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.
This is an amazing outdoor setting for a wonderful light-hearted play that takes place in a magical forest.
