In North Wales

Left Salford Hall in the morning, the wound our way back to London by way of the Cotswolds - and naturally stopping off for afternoon tea en route.

Changing the Guard and Pub Crawl
Friday 29th June 2007
Spent the morning with about a million other tourists watching the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace. Chie's family went off and did their own thing in the afternoon, and then in the evening I took Chie's Dad out for a tour of some of my favourite drinking establishments.
