Easy roll out and good spartan hostel breakfast of hard boiled eggs, cold cuts, cheese, muesli, toast, orange marmalade and brown toast. Maybe not so spartan after all. I am on the cyclist’s food plan. First stop, all time favorite of both of the Smiths, Royal Botanical Garden or Kew Gardens. There was a big installation of Chihuly glass that would be illuminated at night for special shows. It was amazing. Lots of pictures so bear with me.
I missed seeing Big Ben and the riverside view of Parliament so after quick lunch I went to Westminster. Got the photo of Parliament and not of Big Ben scaffolded for repair but what a zoo compared to yesterday.
