Living in London

Greetings! As the summer slowly comes to a close, my Living in the Romance Writing with a Twist World has me living in London for my new WIP. Living in London vicariously, of course. Oh, to really visit! But then again, the date is October 1816, where things are very much different than today...

Or are they? According to the male protagonist, in 1816 an important issue being debated concerns the rights of the individual versus the rights of the state. Hmmm!

But enough politics! (Also a sentiment of A Noble Dilemma's hero.) Currently, he finds himself strolling along the Birdcage Walk bordering St. James's Park to the south. Sounds like a delightful place with a few rare Chinese trees, the Evodia Hupehenisis,

and many exotic birds--the pelican, for one.

While surfing the net, I came across an interesting story from two years ago about a pelican (a strict fish eater) sauntering over to a flock of pigeons in St. James's Park. It then grabbed one and held the pigeon captive in its beak. Twenty minutes later, the pigeon took an involuntary trip down the pelican's throat! Yikes. I guess the pelican forgot it was only supposed to eat fish. :))

Ta-ta for now!
