I caught the early train over to Windsor to visit the Queen. She called the day before wanting to see me, and I told her I was in the area. I told her I would swing by. Okay, so maybe that's not the truth...the Queen wasn't even in the castle the day I was there, but I wanted to check it out anyway! Windsor turned out to be a cute little town with a massive castle in it. As I got close to the castle, I could hear the marching of the British guard marching toward us. I guess it was some kind of changing of the guard ceremony.
I then went up and into the castle area. Although I couldn't go inside, just walking around the outside was a treat. There were several neat sites and beautiful greens in and around the castle area. It was definitely worth the trip, and I also got to learn more about British history.
After checking out the castle, I walked around the town some...down by the train station and then into the downtown area. As it started to rain, I decided to head back to London to see what else I could see there.
