A Walk In The Park

One day I decided to go for a walk in the park.  Green Park, to be more precise.

It was a beautiful day and the sun was shining.  All around people were sitting on the grass or taking a walk.

Green Park is close to Buckingham Palace.  I decided to swing over that way and have a look.

They were fixing up the Victoria Memorial, across from the Palace.  I can still remember my first time in London, when we stood at the statue and looked across at the Palace.

And then I took a picture of the Canada Gate.

I also tried to take a few artsy photos.

I tried to find the Canadian War Memorial, but I was unable to do so.  I wandered in the area where it was located, but I didn’t see anything that wasn’t a tree.

Then I came to the conclusion that since Canada is so greatly associated with the Maple Tree maybe the Memorial was a tree itself.  I couldn’t find it, because it was blending in with the other trees.

Postscript: It turns out that the Canadian Memorial is not a tree.  It’s likely that it was still under repair while I was in London.
