Windsor, changing of the guard

Some of these are just buildings or something I liked. The Starbucks, Pizza Hut and McDonald's are all RIGHT across the road from Windsor Castle, but at least near the back, not near the entrance. Still, it seems with the UK being so strict about the maintenance of historic buildings they'd be concerned with what tourists see at such an iconic site. There were no charity shops; most towns seemed to have five or six. Windsor had souvenir shops with Union Jack everything, rather than charity shops. But it seems the American companies could have moved back another street or two.

This map is tile. It's inside that passageway that shows inside a couple of the photos.

I'm writing this post from DFW. I'm nearly home. That was one great time I had in England and Wales, and I'm deeply grateful to Schuyler, Carolyn, Joy and Julie. I miss my family now, though, so it was just long enough and not too long.

I really enjoyed seeing the sights with you here. May your jet lag be minimal and your reunion wonderful. Welcome back to the USA.
