A little whimsy to brighten the day.
Vera, Chuck and Dave.
When I get older losing my hair, many years from now
Will you still be sending me a valentine
Birthday greetings, bottle of wine?
If I’d been out till quarter to three, would you lock the door?
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I’m sixty-four? .
Hiya, welcome to St James’s Park. At this end of the long lake can be found a cafe, parkland, benches, deck chairs, flower beds, geese, ducks, coots and moorhens here. There are also some very friendly squirrels here and pelicans further down this page (feeding time at the cottage is 2:30 pm).
The nearest underground station is St James (although Westminster is almost as close to the eastern end of the park) and it is a pleasant walk beside the lake from end to end.
The pelicans gather beside this cottage just before 2:30 pm for feeding.
The London Eye.
Buckingham Palace from the Central Bridge
Looking to the west.
If you look carefully, you can see the Old Man of the Willow, sitting down with his hands on his knees.
Horse Guards from the Central Bridge
Looking to the east.
You cannot view the interiors but there is a small museum and one of these.
.. and as always, one of these. Doesn’t it make you want to say “you poor ~ “.
At dusk the fountains light up and from the sound of all the honks and quacks there all having a party 😀 .
