Squirrels, fountains, geese, ducks and rain at St James’s Park

We took a trip this morning to St James’s Park, a huge, green, relaxing natural space in the heart of London, just a stone’s throw from Buckingham Palace. Even though we got caught in the rain along the way, it was a wonderful exploration of birds, waterways, flowers and trees. Halfway through, we saw a commotion happening in a nearby street and hurried over to see that it was the changing of the horse guards – an impressive ceremony performed out in the open for all to see.
