We actually weren’t really aware when we started our day what exactly was going on – just kept hearing tidbits of it from people that the RAF was doing some sort of fly over that day but we didn’t really think anything of it so we headed back to Hyde Park that morning for peddle boating around the Serpentine. We bought 2 boxes of duck food (though in hindsight we should have bought 4 as it was so much fun to feed them). We brought some Pret A Manger sandwiches, beers and Pimms cans (though as we left we saw a sign saying no alcohol…oops) and hopped aboard our little boat. The kids were ecstatic! We boated along, feeding ducks, and checking out the area. We also got to go right up to this crazy art installation by Christo called The London Mastaba, a 20-metre-high sculpture floating on the lake featuring 7,506 barrels. It’s pretty breathtaking to see in person and the kids loved boating around it. This was one of my favorite things we did in London the whole trip, the kids were happy the entire time feeding the ducks and enjoying the adventure and I liked being able to sit and have a Pimm’s Can and sandwich while being driven around a lake by my Dad and Wiley.
