Good morning all!
We are still in the UK. Since last week we have moved from the north of the country to the south, namely Windsor (near London) where queen Elizabeth has a residence in the form of Windsor Castle, and also one of our children lives there with his family (not far from the queen, how cool is that!).
As we come here every year, we have visited the castle several times and did not go there this time.
This is the castle with tourists waiting outside (to see the guards):
We did however see the changing of the guards. The queen has her own guards, but the barracks is two streets away from the castle. Here they come out of the barracks:
So the changing of the guards is spectacular as they have to walk two blocks. They close the streets to all traffic at 11 am.
Then there is a band preceding the guards:
Then the guards walk past with their bear skin hats and polished boots:
We enjoyed watching it.
Our daughter -in-law is a good cook. We had a lovely meal:
Chicken with potato wedges.
And some Portughese wine. Yum!
This wine is perfect to 'share' at Elizabeth and Bluebeard's T-party. By all means join us with any blogpost with a drink in it.
I hope you enjoyed our visit to Windsor,
See you all next week,
Have a good week,
