Peter Pan in the Park

Now that we've established that I love Peter Pan, I have an excuse to show you some photos that I took of the Peter Pan statue in Kensington Gardens.

The very short backstory to this is that after graduating from university in 2009, I took a month-long bus tour of Europe. My flight across the Atlantic landed in London a great many hours after having left Saskatchewan, and I arrived in the middle of transit strike, meaning that all of the information that I had about how to get to my hotel from the airport was rendered essentially useless. This resulted in me roaming Hyde Park somewhat deliriously, and deciding that when the tour ended and I was back in London, I'd visit it again properly.

That's precisely what I did, and having learned of the Peter Pan statue, I wandered around in search of it for quite some time, meanwhile discovering a lot of cool stuff in both Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens.

The most delightful mice ever cast in bronze?
