When we arrived at Buckingham Palace, I was again reminded that I don't find it a very attractive building. To me it looks like a courthouse or some other similar institution, but I suppose a palace isn't necessarily supposed to look inviting. The geraniums were nice, though.
The Victoria Memorial Monument stands in front of the palace. I find it has a little too much gold for my taste - dare I say tacky?
Both patrol at the palace. My son tells me that the red coated guards are highly trained and that I should not be deceived by their quaint uniform.
