Windsor, my Windsor

I have lived around Windsor, England,  my whole life long: and I never stop loving it.

This morning was one of those quirky moments: my son had a football match at Home Park – the stretch opposite the castle, overlooking the railway – and I grabbed my camera, resolving to take a few snaps while my husband stood on the sideline.

Britain was behaving. There was not a hint of rain; a perfect deep blue Autumn sky, glittering low-slung sunshine, and all the tourist delights of one of Queen Victoria’s favourite haunts at my fingertips.

Sometimes, a picture paints a thousand words.

Come walk round Windsor with me.

  1. Thank you Kate ! As usual you have helped make my day alot better and kept me connected and amused and informed of my dear olde Blighty !

    1. Hi Grace, you are most welcome. It was such a beautiful morning!

  2. Kate, my last visit to England was in Autumn, and the weather was beautiful every day except one. How fortunate you are to live in such a lovely, historic place! Thanks for sharing your photos!-Jillian

    1. Jillian, I am glad your Autumn in England was a good one. The colours are so vibrant! We are lucky, you are quite right. Except, of course, when it rains….

  3. Today was a perfect day Kate and you have captured it beautifully. Love that gaggle of swans.

    1. They are fairly il-behaved swans, Rosemary, well used to tourists and rather swaggering. But they do look pretty.

  4. That’s a beautiful place to live. Thanks for allowing visitors on your walk.

    I’ve only just discovered this blog and I’m catching up on recent posts. This post made me wistful and homesick. I lived in England for 4 years when stationed in London with the U.S. Navy. I met my husband over there (an American serviceman), and the day that I realized that I was falling in love with him was the day we walked through Windsor after spending the morning and afternoon at Royal Ascot in 1986. I will always associate Windsor with that wonderful turning point in my life. 🙂 Thanks for sharing your beautiful pictures with us.

    1. What a wonderful tale, Bernadette: I can quite see how these pictures would make you feel wistful. Maybe one day you can both make a trip back to take a walk along the high street, past the castle, once again. Windsor will be waiting. It always seems to wait patiently for me 🙂
