It was Trooping the Colour in Central London today, in honour of Her Majesty's Official Birthday.
I knew that The Boy Child would never cope with the hustle and bustle of the large crowd the event attracts, but I still wanted him to see some of it in person. I worked out that a good vantage point would be inside Hyde Park, near to Hyde Park Corner and, despite a short rain shower, it worked out well.
We had a bird's eye view of the Household Cavalry, including the Mounted Band, returning to their barracks.
He had soldiers.
And as luck would have it, I ticked a few more Photography Scavenger Hunt items off my list: #4, #5 and #14.
You can read about Trooping in a post from June 2010 here.
Last year, I wrote a post about history repeating itself.
