After having missed my train on Thursday because I had mixed up the arrival time with the departure time, I had to take the next day, Friday, and unfortunately missed Mary who was away this day.
So as I only had half a day before I took the train to Eastbourne, I took the opportunity to visit Buckingham Palace where a special exhibition of the Queen's dresses took place.
From the Eurostar terminal St. Pancras I took a bus to Victoria Station to leave my luggage there, before continuing my journey to Eastbourne. I love to take the Bus it's kind of sightseeing for me, in the tube I see nothing, just like a mole. And I am not in a hurry !
I stated that each year I come to London things have changed and more and more glass boxes are built ! Much to my sorrow !
After having dropped my luggage I tried to find my way through the construction side to the Buckingham palace. Rather difficult !!
As I had booked my entrance ticket at home and printed out, I had no difficulties at all to get into the exhibition. It was very well organised. I had lunch at Buckingham palace (how does that sound) although the Queen missed me !
Until it was time to get back to the station, I sat in the Buckingham park on different benches and enjoyed this beautiful place !
The train arrived in time and Doug picked me up. We had a lot to chat of course. That was my first day ! Tomorrow I am off for my tour to Scotland !
