Sunrise 6:03 am: Culture shock to the soul


The Dawn Joggers actually rose at dawn in order to catch a plane to London. The weather report of "scattered showers" translated into the typical English steady rain - not unexpected but a bit of a shock to the Provence kissed soul neverthless.
Undeterred they set off for lunch in St. James Park and watched the amazing variety of waterfowl jockey for position when a food sack appeared. They had Green Park, Hyde Park and Kensington Park near to themselves on their after lunch six mile loop walk - even on this, a holiday weekend. Back to the hotel (the very nice 41 - a bit of London secret) drenched, only to have the sun appear. Yes, England.
