Thanks for calling in.
Windsor Great Park is true to its name, it's huge and fabulous all in one go. No matter how many times you pass the totem pole near Virginia Water lake, the camera has to come out for another shot.
The faces stare down, however, some of the trees in the park have their own strange features like the one below with its antlers, trunk and smiley eyes.
We were on a mission to walk to the famous Copper Horse statue that you can see from Windsor Castle right at the end of the Long Walk, there and back turned out to be 16,000 steps. Starting at the car park on the A30, walking past the large Virginia Water lake and Obelisk Pond, with its tall obelisk looming large, it wasn't long till we were near The Savill Garden with its magnificent magnolias and rhododendrons spilling over the fences.
Daffodils naturally were everywhere.
Entering the Deer Park through the gate, we could see them browsing in the distance. Look at those antlers.
Round the corner and the Long Walk and Windsor Castle came into view somewhat cloaked in mist. Was the Queen there? Well there was a flag flying but I couldn't see which one.
Turning back past the royal lodges, you can't miss the Park properties that are all painted this rather pretty shade of pink.
Having been past Obelisk Pond and seen the Obelisk, I was very keen to see recently renovated, rectangular Cow Pond, but could I find a cow? No. It will be very pretty in the summer when the waterlilies are blooming though. There's a tiny covered seat at the end of the pond, you might just be able to make it out as we stand on the bridge.
Just about back to the car park, doesn't the grass look wonderful in the sun which eventually burned away the cloud.
