Windsor and Eton

I went to a reunion near Windsor two weekends ago. Some friends and I went into Windsor on the Saturday morning and decided to do a trip on the tourist bus. It was a beautifully sunny and warm day, and we were very comfortable sitting in the open air on the top deck of the bus.

The tourist bus. It was very colourful, and there was a commentary throughout the whole journey.
Windsor Castle, as seen at the start of the trip.
Windsor castle at the end of the long straight drive.......
......and again across some fields, on our way to....
Eton.
An interesting roof garden somewhere in Eton.
The famous playing fields.
A tilled field with feasting birds (think of Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds")
Our view of Windsor Castle at the end of the trip. It really was an interesting tour, and we all enjoyed ourselves. After that, well, does shopping and lunch sound familiar?

Dabrah thanks for the trip down memory lane. I worked for 9 years in one of the buildings as you cross the pedestrian bridge between Windsor & Eton, right next to the river. It's a beautiful place.
