Back in August, after we had checked out of the Four Seasons in Hampshire, we made a short drive to Windsor before heading home. I didn’t use these photos at the time, but now that I’ve stumbled upon them again, I thought it was worth dedicating some time to Windsor. As we came on a whim, there was no real agenda for the trip apart from ‘looking at stuff’. So, lo and behold, here is the ‘Stuff I saw in Windsor’
I was mooned by a swan.
That swan bum bobbed around in the water following me, so, I feel like it was personal?
Bird moonings aside, it was very nice by the river, what with all the swans and people in the canoes.
This being Windsor, where is Windsor Castle I hear you cry?!
Here she is.
Just a teensy bit busy.
Naively, I thought being a Sunday morning, it wouldn’t be crowded but wow.
The crowds matched those of a busy day down Oxford Circus. The queue to enter the castle grounds snaked well around the corner, and I couldn’t see where it ended. So that idea was canned and instead, we just walked around the castle and hung out by the river, with my swan pals.
It’s a lovely market town to explore, made prettier with the castle towering over the centre.
The world is a prettier place outside the Big Smoke. In Windsor, there’s a great big castle large enough to fit Elsa, Anna, and the whole kingdom of Arendelle to serve as a backdrop against your Costa Coffee run or weekend shop. It’s stunning.
I like you Windsor, I feel like my time with you is not over yet.
