Noteworthy moment - Day 1
Walking around Hampstead Heath (supposedly the park inspiring Lewis' picture of Narnia) we came across a lovely little duck pond with children playing at it. With the ducks were two swans. Beautiful. As we arrived at the pond there was a park vehicle pulling up. Two men hopped out, walked directly to the swans, grabbed their necks and gathered the flapping wings and bodies under arm and walked away grunting to themselves at the strain of containing the large birds. Everyone a bit confused one lady called out "What are you doing with them?" This was the answer and must be read with a poky british accent almost exactly like Jasper and Horace from 101 Dalmations: 1st man "They were being a menace, chasing the ducks away." "Being a menace!" echoed the 2nd man. 1st man "They didn't want to leave." "Didn't want to leave!" again echoed the 2nd. They then dropped them in an adjoining pond and walked back to their van. The End.
