My

March

Travel Theme.

As many visitors do we waited at

Buckingham Palace for

the Changing of the Guard…or at least part of it.

We watched as a steady stream of tourists

marched to the Palace

And then were surprised to see a band marching from

the Palace precinct down The Mall…

followed by this group.

My feet envied this group.

in their groups.

Finally the ceremony began.

However, I have been left wondering if budget constraints

have reduced the size, or number,

of personnel participating in this ceremony.

I am sure it was a grander affair in 1976.

But then again, wasn’t everything better

when we were younger.

Some of yesterday’s in Black and White…not all.

A big thank you to Google today.

I decided to search for La Place and found one

in Melbourne (Victoria)

but decided the one I had visited

 was situated in

Hazeldonk in the Netherlands.

A fairly universal sign as to what

is available at La Place.

Colour or BW…these still look yummy.

Some of the fare…even healthy.

After all the well-tended and bright flowers

we had seen in London and Brugge,

it was nice to see some hydrangea.

While a bit past their best.

Kind of reminded me of home!

After using amenities available,

morning tea/coffee or otherwise, it was…

 back on the coach and Amsterdam…

here we come!
