Vacation time

Hyde Park, June 26
I have returned from a week in London - and posts will resume on Wednesday.  A friend took me to Clandon Park near Guildford - Plan B, as it was pouring, which meant scratching a visit to Savill Gardens and Virginia Water.


I also spent a day at Windsor, seeing the Prince Philip exhibit and toured the castle of the umpteenth castle, and walked across the bridge to Eton.   Had lunch in St. James's Park.  Stood in line to meet Barry Manilow and have him sign his new CD.  Saw Pygmalion with Dame Diana Rigg as Mrs. Higgins.  In 1974, she played the definitive Eliza Doolittle.  Got sunburn -- really -- while swimming in Serpentine at the Lido in Hyde Park.   Lots of walking.
