We headed into London bright and early to catch the procession for The Colonel's Review. This is a dress rehearsal for the Trooping of the Colour ceremony which will take place next weekend to celebrate the Queen's birthday. If there's one thing the British do well it is ceremony and pageantry. What a thrill to see the band playing and the soldiers marching. And, oh my, the horses! So beautiful and regal looking with their fancy tack.

And it wouldn't be a day in London without spotting something a bit out of the ordinary. So I really should not have been so surprised when over 1000 nude bicycle riders zoomed past us near County Hall. It seems we stumbled upon the path of the London Naked Bike Ride. I think my nine year old daughter may be scarred for life!
Never a dull moment! I hope you had an exciting Saturday, too.
