The Egyptians were waiting at the window for me this morning (Friday 13th!!) and I threw them some bread.
It's going to be a very warm day and we decided to walk into Windsor ... very slowly. I packed us a picnic to eat by the river.
There are lots of benches to sit and watch along the river and we took advantage of them.
Under Windsor Bridge
Walking along the Brocas with great views of the castle.
Not seen this building before ...
The Crooked House of Windsor (also known as the Market Cross House) in Windsor, England, is a commercial building dating from 1687. It is the oldest teahouse in all of England. It is Grade II listed. The building was reconstructed in the eighteenth century and now stands on "an outrageous slant." It has three storeys and bay windows to the front and rear.
We did the bits of shopping we (I) needed and walked down to the river to eat our picnic in the sunshine and walked home again ...
18½k steps and nearly 5 miles ... all slowly!
on the way back we sat in the cool shade of the church of St Mary Madeline at Boveney which for centuries was known as the Bargee's Church.
and to round off a really good day ... a bbq ...
and a stunning sunset!
What more could we ask for?
