London Awaits……Diamond Jubilee Celebrations!

30 May

It’s here….time to fly over the pond to London! There will be so many things to do, doubt any of us will get any sleep. Serendipity has been with us in getting the details of this trip to fall into place. What can I say! In a city that hosts many fabulous events each year, this weekend’s Diamond Jubilee Celebrations will be one of a kind. From the Grand Thames Diamond Jubilee Flotilla to the Street Parties and other  more local celebrations like those at the London Metropolitan Archives, where they will be sharing memories from Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee in 1897 to the present or the Society of Genealogists, who will host a Neighbourhood party in the cul-de-sac outside their location, it will be one SUPER PARTY! 

Sunday, THE BIG DAY, we will watch the River Parade from a suite in a 5 Star Hotel along the Embankment ( more about this later) and take in a Party in Battersea Park, where I won tickets from the Thames Festival, which hosts the annual Mayor’s Thames River Festival in September. This year it will end the Olympic celebrations in London with a Grand Finale held on September 8 and 9, 2012. Wish I could be there!!!!

Well, time to go and do my final chores before I head to the airport! My 2 Adventurous Tripper friends are already there. Now it is my turn. Bon Voyage!
