8 July 2001 stroll through Regent's Park

"Once Henry VII's hunting preserve Regent's Park was planned at the
beginning of the 19th century by John Nash."

We enjoyed watching the water fowl on the lake, especially the swans.

The picture below is on the other side of the lake, facing the entry...you can
see our "home to be" (the blue metal building) in the background (center)
about a half-mile from the park.

The English love their animals too.  We played briefly with a 4-year-old female Bichon in the park - she was stalking and running after squirrels.
