A day in Windsor

We were planning to visit Windsor Castle yesterday but events decided otherwise. Windsor was even more jam packed than we had anticipated. Hoardes of tourists wandering round following guides with little red flags.

Well fed swans gather in their hundreds beside the trip boat landings.


Somehow I don’t think this boat does a lot of cruising.


We had a stroll across the bridge and down towards Eton.

    We were stuck next to that boat for 2 weeks in April 2013 when the river was up. I wonder if he pays!! The delay stopped our trip on the Wey so looking forward to your blog and,Linda’s … She pointed me in your direction.

      They certainly managed to collect our mooring fee when we were in Windsor! Shame you missed out on the Wey last time it really is lovely here – specially when the weather is as brilliant as it has been over the last few days.
