  3. So that is the gate at Buckingham Palace--no one is going to climb over that one very easily! It is magnificent!

  4. Yep, there's no mistaking the fact they want to keep most everyone out! Goodness gracious!

  9. What is the two shields there. Trying to make it out, but just not sure. Guess back in the day they needed to feel safe maybe when it was built that's why it's so huge. I thought they had guards outside the gate.

    1. The Royal Coat of Arms is on the shields. We saw guards inside the gate when we visited, but I've seen pictures of guards outside of it on horses.

    1. That trip was before I started a blog, but it would have been great for me and my family to meet up with you for a hello in person! London is my husband's most favorite place to visit, hands down, ever. :) You live in a great place!

  13. That sure is a gate ... and a huge gate at that. I wonder how many men and boys it takes to open it by hand? I am sure it is controlled electrically these days.

    1. It didn't open when we were there. I don't think the queen was there either because there were only two guards outside. It's been awhile, but I think I read if there are two outside the front door, that means the queen is not there. I do know they were in grey coats because it was cold and rainy. More often they are in red. :)

  14. That is beautiful! I've never been to Buckingham Palace. That must have been quite the site. Have a terrific Wednesday!

  15. Did you see me waving out the window of my house while you were there? :) Queen Christy

    1. I knew that was you!! I told my husband, 'Look, it's Queen Christy!' :)

      Can you even imagine what it's like to live in such a place? I wonder if we'd love it, or if we'd miss the cozy, comfy nooks we have now. :)

  16. Yes, that's a gate and your husband. Don't forget about him.

    1. Meh, you all have seen his picture before. ;) KIDDING! And you totally made me laugh. My husband is giddy happy in that picture because he's totally head over heels about all things London. Even though that pic is a bit fuzzy, it's still one of my favorites of him (aforementioned reason being why). :)
