The day trip to Buckingham Palace went well. We arrived early and were allowed in before our allotted time. This proved useful as we were allowed to move through the Palace at our own individual pace. The audio guide gave you the opportunity to choose as much information as you wanted to learn about the exhibits. We stopped at Hampton Court on the return journey but did not have time to loose anyone in the maze.

Our outing to Bucklers Hard, a themed 18th Century Village, was warm and sunny and an interesting day. The history museum of Bucklers Hard was very interesting. The outward journey took us through the New Forest. We spent a pleasant 30 minutes on a boat cruise on the Beaulieu River after which we roamed around the village and had refreshments. On the return trip we called at Lyndhurst in the centre of the New Forest.

We went on a day trip to the West Midland Safari and Leisure Park. It proved to be a worth while trip. Despite the wet morning there were plenty of animals to see, the rain did not worry them. We were also able to go around the park again in the afternoon when the rain had abated. On the return journey we stopped at Webbs Garden Centre for a tea break. Some of the animals we saw are shown below.
