Round the back ...

Another warm sunny day gratefully accepted again as we take a walk around the ‘other side’ of Windsor
We walked the Thames Path toward Old Windsor Lock and saw these parakeets feeding in a yard across the railway line
 This is the building in that same yard and I think the emblem (if that’s the correct name) denotes Victoria and Albert.  I’m sure someone will correct me if I’m wrong.

 Further along are a group of ‘water’ buildings; the stones on this one are VR1 and 1808 which would also be Victoria, celebrating her date of birth
... and this one George V
 Windsor Castle from the railway bridge
 ... and the castle’s North Terrace, which house the State Apartments, taken from Home Park
 (Clicking on any of the pictures will enlarge them)
 It was such a balmy day I couldn’t tell if the Queen’s standard was flying from the Round Tower today which would have denoted whether she was in residence or not

The school where the young choristers for St George’s Chapel within the castle grounds are trained

King George V Memorial designed by Sir Edward Lutyens

The Castle once again this time taken from the railway station foot bridge at Alexander Park as we return to Still Rockin’.
