Windsor Castle

Today, our last full day in England, we decided to take a short trip to see the Queen. Admittedly she wasn’t home, but we did the day in Windsor anyway.

Windsor is a pretty impressive castle and it is hard, to an American at least, envisioning anyone actually living there. The gardens are too perfectly manicured

The lawns are too well laid out

We wandered the outside and took in the views

It was a nice visit, and we even managed to see a small changing of the guard.

    I think the sheer size is my most lasting impression. And the quaint tow that surrounds it adds just the right touch. See you when you get back.
