Windsor

Angharad, Bronwen, and I started the day with breakfast at Frankie and Benny’s. I had a traditional full English breakfast and my cousins had bacon and pancackes:

We went to the Feltham station where we waited for about ten minutes for the next train:

When we arrived in Windsor I took a goofy photo of the castle (turns out the Queen was actually in the castle while we were in Windsor!).

image

We planned to get on a tour bus. Here’s some pictures from before we boarded:

image image image image

Once we were on the tour bus I took some panoramas from the top:

image image

I also took some photos of the castle while we waited to depart:

image image image

We sat on the second floor of the bus, which was open. It was raining at the time so we were in for quite an experience. Here’s some pictures from the trip:

Here’s a picture of me and Windsor Bridge:

A problem with being on the top floor of the bus was that the trees were quite low. Whenever we passed under a branch, Angharad and I had to duck since we were on the outside side of the bus. Despite our efforts, we got quite wet from water falling off the branches.

image

Then a branch hit me in the face. Don’t worry, I got a selfie with it:

image image

Here’s some pictures that give an idea of how wet this bus tour really was:

image image

This is how everything looked from my perspective:

image

When the tour bus got back to the starting location, we found a Costa Coffee and I had a double espresso. Angharad had English tea and Bronwen had some sort of caramel latte drink.

image

While we had planned to warm up and dry off in the Costa, it was actually warmer outside than in. We had to hold Angharad’s tea pot to keep warm (some people are excited in the background of the picture of me):

image image

After coffee we went shopping at H&M (pronounced hache and M) and Top Shop so that Bronwen could buy a sweater. I entertained myself by finding a sign that was missing a letter:

image image image

This is a picture of the shopping area, taken from the tour bus earlier:

image

After getting a sweater we found a train at the old Windsor station:

image

We went to a sweet shop and Bronwen bought some blue sour raspberry balls:

image image

We found that these made our tongues blue:

image

After the sweet shop we went to Nando’s for lunch. Bronwen had a chicken sandwich and Angharad and I shared a chicken.

image image image

Next, we took some selfies in front of Windsor Castle:

image image

Bronwen got my phone and took some more selfies:

image image image image

We stopped by a memorial to George V before getting back on the train:

image

When we arrived back in Feltham the girls gave me a mini tour of their town. Bronwen wouldn’t pose in front of KFC (her favorite) so I took a sneaky panorama. A woman that apparently didn’t want to be featured on my blog with her child started moving quickly out of the shot, creating a weird blur:

image

In the evening we watched City Slickers. Since I hadn’t been to a pub yet and didn’t want to break my combo, Uncle Richard and I went to The General Roy where we drank The Rev. James and something with a name I don’t remember.
