Where I stayed
Rita's and Tony's House
Before I got up for the morning, I looked at all my pictures. Then I had a shower and breakfast. Rita and I went to Tesco's for groceries. I bought more Jelly Babies and McVitie’s Digestive Biscuits. When we got back Josie had called to volunteer to drive us to Windsor because it would be hard to find parking today which is a Bank Holiday. So Josie drove us to Windsor Castle and showed us where things are. The first thing we did was ride the Wheel, a large enclosed ferris wheel. From the Wheel we had a good view of Windsor Castle, the Thames River, and Eton College.
Our boat ride on the Thames was relaxing and informative. I took lots of pictures. The top of the boat was full so we had the bottom to ourselves for most of the trip
Josie picked us up and we went back to her house in Engelfield Green. We had a cup of tea and cake. Then we came back to Rita and Tony’s. Rita and I went to Ursula’s to pick up the dog, Heidi. I got to see the progress made in Ursula’s new extension. The cupboards and countertops are in and the floor is laid. Warren was working in the dining room and Ursula was putting together a buggy for the baby coming in two weeks. On the way back we took Heidi for a walk in the local park.
When we returned, I started working on my blogs and am now finishing the last one. Rita fixed a simple dinner for us of bread, cheese, veggies from the garden and fruit for dessert. We watched TV as I finished my blogs. It is almost 10:00 and I need to pack.
