Window into the Past

Windsor, the Queen's "other" official residence was built during the time of William the Conqueror. It used to be considered the "country home" of the royals and they would come here when they needed to get out of the city and relax away from Buckingham Palace. The drive is just a short hour from our home. The castle is magnificent with its beautiful buildings, lavish furnishings and the meticulously kept grounds. It isnt hard to imagine the lure of this place over the last 900 hundred years. Along with St. George's Chapel, which is on the grounds...it took about three hours to tour inside and out. This is a snapshot of one of the hundreds of windows there.
