How nice to see you
I've been back to Windsor just in time for this week's Five on Friday. Don't forget to visit Amy's blog to see what everyone else has been up to.
One - Flags
Flags were still fluttering in the breeze (sometimes screeching in the gale!) one week after the excitement of the Queen's 90th birthday celebrations - there are going to be a few more events later in the Spring.
Two - Walking Around the Town
This walkway was placed around the town in September 2015 to mark the Queen becoming the longest reigning Monarch. It is 6.373 km in length symbolically representing one more day than the length of Queen Victoria's reign i.e. 63 years 7 months and 3 days.
Three - Inside the Castle Grounds
Four- Inside the Castle
This time my visit included a look at Queen Mary's Dolls House, which I will post about tomorrow but I also had another wander round the State Apartments, the Shakespeare Exhibition, where excitingly the first, second and third folios of his work were on display, and St Georges Chapel to admire the John Piper window.

Five - Travel
I don't think I will be returning to Windsor any time soon especially after all the palaver getting there on the bus. I was expecting as much as the number of buses have been cut down severely due to a different company taking over and there being no reciprocal arrangement between the two bus companies left. Irritating!

Maybe I should catch the train, not this one though!
Have a good week.
