A lovely warm spring day in London. Spent the day doing all the tourist things including a ride on the London Eye.
Did a lot of walking and my feet are telling the story tonight. I didn't stay to watch the changing of the guard, I've seen it twice before but I love to walk down the Mall and through St. James Park.
I finished the day off with an evening stroll through The Regents Park which is just a short walk from the Hotel where I'm staying.
I flew to Jersey for the day mostly to find the memorial to Portia Owen Hemery. Portia's father William Fitzwilliam Owen was granted Campobello Island and there is a memorial to Portia in St. Anne's Church on the island. She died and is buried on Jersey and her memorial there is in St. Luke's church. After finding the memorial I walked around St. Helier and the water front before flying back to Guernsey.
