The Queen's Birthday Salute

Yesterday was another beautiful day in Redhill and I must say that since we have been here Redhill has had nothing but nice weather. So cheers to Josh and Steph for all of the great the weather...!

Since it was sunny and warm we took the train into London to see the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery perform a 21 gun salute for the Queen's birthday at Hyde Park. The show was only a few minutes in length but was worth it. Once the horses rode in and dropped off the 6 cannons they started the count down and began firing. One after another a few seconds apart they rumbled the center of London. After each shot you could hear the echo throughout London as I am sure all parts of London could hear if not feel the boom.

Unfortunately the pictures I took didn't turn out as I had hoped but I posted them anyway along with a short movie I filmed during the salute. Check it out below.
