My luck seemed to stay with me that morning, as I won quite a bit on the slot machines, and after tucking that money away, I got ready to claim my spot in the square. I had great views of the Prince, from the time of his arrival, until the second he left the docks on his boat.
He was there to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee, and while he talked for some time, I can’t quite remember exactly what he said. I think I was too impressed by the fact that I was so close to a member of the Royal Family.
Once I watched Prince Harry leave the marina, I ventured over to the Straw Market to see what they had available. I hadn’t gone in during my shopping expedition the day before, because I had to leave for Balmoral. While I was impressed with how many vendors were inside the market, I was not overly enthused with how they all try to get you to purchase everything that they have. The pressure was too intense for me, so I left quickly without buying anything. That is quite unusual for me, as I am always picking up little souvenirs from my travels.
