Q is for Queen's and King's Houses (Hampton Court, Windsor, and Buckingham Palace)
Today's post is going to be short--it took me forever to think of what I would do for Q, and I don't have many photos...plus I've been working long hours and I'm tired. I give you Queen's and King's houses!
Hampton Court Palace, England (1990)
On my first trip to visit Mike's family in England, we had to go to a funeral...the elderly woman whom Mike had befriended in college had died. He's still in touch with all of her daughters--he's so sweet! On our way home from the funeral, we stopped at Hampton Court Palace, home of King Henry VIII. Apparently Hampton Court appeared in the recent HBO miniseries "John Adams."
It was much gloomier on the November day we visited!

We didn't go inside but just wandered around the grounds.
Windsor, England (early 1990s)
I've been to Windsor Castle a few times--it wasn't too far from Reading, where Mike's parents used to live. Of all the royal residences I've visited, I think it's my favorite.

We've been to Buckingham Palace a few times, too--can't remember how many times. The Queen hasn't invited me to tea yet!
|I could look at these horse guards all day--they are fascinating!|
Looking forward to the day when there will be more women!
|Wouldn't you love to walk up that staircase?|
