Our Adventure: Windsor {2}

{after our meal, we decided to go on a ferry trip...the girls loved it! and it was so nice waving to all the other people on their barges/ other ferries/ row boats etc. we went on a 40-minute trip to Boveney Lock with French Brothers. it was also really wonderful seeing the countryside including views of Eton as well as all the birdlife.}

Our Adventure: Take-off & Windsor {1}

{getting ready to go! such excitement! our aeroplane! finally there... and still alive!}

{so Gemma nearly completed the Long Walk... she only had about 500m left to the 1829 Copper Horse statue atop Snow Hill... and she ran the entire way! It is is a 4.26 km walk from George IV Gateway at Windsor Castle to the Copper Horse. It runs through Windsor Great Park. We didn't see any deer... but lots of adorable dogs!}

{after all that, we needed food + something to drink! the King and Castle fit the bill perfectly!}
