We Whispered a Fond Adieu…

It’s no secret around this Old House and my blog that Dear and I are very fond of traveling to Great Britain. This is my fond farewell post of our latest travels back in July.

Our final two days were spent just outside of Windsor. On our final full day we spent some time on a boat trip on the Thames, a walk across the bridge to Eton and shopping on High Street in Windsor. Here are some photos to show our adventure.

We saw a few loaded boats with students learning to row as we started off our river tour and then we came upon this scene…

Oops, looks like they need a little more schooling on rowing properly.

On our way back we saw the kids bailing the water out of the boat!

After our lovely cruise we took a walk across the Thames on this bridge to explore a little of Eton.

After all this cruising and walking it was time to find a spot to eat…

We chose the Duchess of Cambridge.

After we were full and satisfied we did some souvenir shopping in town.

Here’s our one and only Selfie that we decided to take outside the Selfie London store on High Street!

This was a shop I had to check out since I’m quite a fan of T.J.Maxx in the U.S.A. I was happy to find a souvenir nicely priced.

The Crooked House was a restaurant that served coffee and Afternoon Tea. They advertise that they are Royal Windsor’s only tearoom.

Windsor is another town that I wouldn’t mind re-visiting.

I took this picture as we left our hotel on the way to Heathrow to fly home. Why yes, I do hope to come back soon! Toodle Pip!

  1. I love your paisley blouse.
    Your meals at the Duchess of Cambridge are making me drool. (I should go to bed now before I raid the refrigerator.)
    Your selfie makes me smile. Of course you’d take a selfie there. Who wouldn’t? 🙂
    Thank you for sharing your trip with us!

  2. Not so good at those selfies, are you?! Thanks for the chuckle. They really say things like toodle pip? What fun! Must show John the crooked tea room. I think it will worry him. =D

  3. Love that crooked house. That selfie is pretty funny! You really have taken some wonderful trips. I always enjoy your re visits for our pleasure.

  4. All good things must come to an end! Sadly. I have enjoyed visiting England through your lens. It brought back memories of our time visiting some of the same sights.

  5. The crooked Tea House and your Selfie made me smile!! Toodle Pip – what a great expression!! I will be back to revisit this series and hopefully one day will also visit some of these wonderful places!

  6. I know this is a trip you guys will never forget. It was filled with adventure and lots of eye candy as well as the educational value. Being able to visit other countries and get and up close and personal view of the culture is an absolutely invaluable tool to understanding, tolerance and love in this life. You get a bird’s eye view – while employing all the 5 senses – of the day-to-day goings on which is something Wiki or the National Geographic simply cannot provide.

    I love the TK Maxx store! That’s funny!!! The crooked tea room is wild, too!

    I’m afraid I’ll be using that “Toodle Pip!” phrase now when saying goodbye to people!!!
