We have had a special day out
here the presentation shown on BBC,
we were not allowed to take photo's
(Colours are their flags)
A Welsh Guardsman welcoming the visitors
Windsor castle behind him.
The long walk
here we parked our cars
Closer to the castle
On duty, these Guards men were everywhere
A naughty photo inside before it all started.
It was a fantastic day, all dressed up in my new frock and posh hat.We had a lovely view of everything inside the castle walls, the lawn was just perfect green with stripe, all very posh. The weather was kind, it was cloudy a couple of times, but no rain. We were under the flight path and close to Heathrow airport, planes went over regularly.
Hubby enjoyed seeing his old regiment, The Welsh Guards on show.
This is the closest we have ever been to our Queen.One fun moment, we were sat on the back row, with a great view, behind us, just as the guards were marching in was Sophie Rayworth, she was there to make her report for BBC news, lovely lady, very friendly.
We walked back along the Long Row, to huge tents, the Irish Guards band was playing to entertain everyone. The afternoon tea was set out perfectly, with tables covered with huge white clothes, The chocolate brownie was to die for, I did think I would share it with hubby, but after the first nibble it had to be all mine. The small bagel perfectly made, sandwiches with no crusts, with a scone, cream and jam.
The drive home was under 2 hours, we stopped and had our evening meal out, a lovely end to a perfect day. It was a pleasant surprise for hubby to get this invitation, it's a day we will remember for a long time.
At home all the rain is helping the lawn look good, and every thing is growing well in the garden including the tomato plants I put out last weekend. Off now to have the rest of a plesent evening with hubby.
I also had a surprise email, more about that next week, but it made me smile.
