18 met at the posted time, 1 lagged 10 minutes behind, catching us while still in Kensington Gardens. We veered off the gpx route to pass by the Serpentine Pavilion (the bar inside shuts at 6, unfortunately) and then admired The Mastaba, majestically dominating the Serpentine, and veered off route again in Green Park to get away from the traffic a wee bit. Bucks Palace was next, then St. James's Park including its Pelicans and through the Government Quarter. Most, if not all, turned into the Wetherspoon's for some sustenance.
