The last bit of our Trip to London

Saturday morning we woke up bright and early to head to Windsor. Again, it was a breeze utilizing our London Pass to catch a train for free. We simply looked up the schedule online, waled 10 minutes from the hotel to Paddington Station, and off we went on a quick 20-25 min jaunt (1 quick train transfer at a nearby station) to Windsor!

As you approach, you can see Windsor Castle which is stunning. It is the largest inhabited castle, and it is truely remarkable – it surpassed my expectations! Addy noticed the Queen’s flag was flying, which meant she was “in the house”! Exciting! We walked the grounds, saw Princess Mary’s doll house, and received a massive tour of the State Apartments – including the throne room!

We proceeded outside to watch the changing of the guards, and then – headed to Freddy’s of Windsor for some Fish ‘n Chips. We were back at the hotel for a nice nap by 1:00pm (and failed attempt #1 at the leisure center’s pool!).

On Sunday, Caitlin had to study a bit, so Addy and I went off to explore. We tried the Pool again, which didn’t work. So we decided to walk. We walked miles and miles – saw some flowers, some parks, went shopping, got a snack, and ultimately ended up at Princess Diana’s Memorial Playground. WOW! What a place. Full of new friends (Matilda) and great families. It was a beautiful day – sunny and 70 – and we had a blast. After we were done playing, we tried once more (3rd time!) for the pool, which was a negative, and headed back to see Caitlin.

We then decided to buy Champagne tickets for the London Eye. The trip around the Eye is about 40-45minutes, enjoyed with a glass of champagne (water for Addy!) and a tour guide in the Eye. It was fun to see the city from ‘up high’. We proceeded on to the Science Museum to learn about the Apollo Missions and a little about technology, and finished our last time out and about in London at Kensington Creperie– yum!

 

We spent time later that evening at the Edge Bar in our hotel – enjoying wine, snacks, and Addy playing teacher. What an absolute blast. The next morning we headed to the airport, took a non-stop flight home, (sadly) said goodbye to Caitlin, and headed back to the boys!

We can’t wait for our next adventure.

Cheers to Travel and Family and Friends,
