Thanks to some beautiful summer weather in London, I was able to enjoy St James Park one evening. Along with the ducks, I admired the view of the London Eye, also known now as the Coca-Cola London Eye. St James's Park, which was once farmland, woods, and a hospital for women lepers, is the oldest of the capital's eight Royal Parks. The park includes The Mall and Horse Guards Parade and provides the setting for spectacular pageants including the annual Trooping the Colour, a traditional ceremony performed by regiments of the British and Commonwealth armies. The ducks here were trying to give me a demonstration of what it's like. I get the idea. Nicely done, ducks.
