The Thames/ Windsor (England)

Our last day in London was spent boating on the Thames around Windsor. Our friends Nicola and Craig took us out on Nicola's family's boat and we had a fantastic time. We pottered up and down the Thames and then had a picnic on the grounds just outside of Windsor Castle.

Here is our El Capitan, Miss Nicola. Someone had to keep charge of the boat with two crazy Canadians and a couple of Kiwis as the crew.





Here is a picture of Wade with the two Kiwi's, Craig and Stewart. What a small world it is when we found out on the boat that both Craig and Stewart had worked with our friend Jamie's brother Greg in New Zealand some years ago. Jamie, pass on a hello from Craig and Stewart to your brother.


And we even came across a set of locks on the Thames. Okay, they may not be the size of the Three Gorges Dam or the Panama Canal...but they were still tricky and Nicola safely navigated us through!




Here is a look at Windsor Castle looming in the background. Apparently the Queen was in as the flag was flying (apparently she likes to spend Sunday's in Windsor and attends church there), but once again we were not invited in for tea. That's okay though as we had a fantastic picnic, complete with Champagne. I say we go visit Nic and Craig more often.

And here is a picture of some of the buildings that line the Thames around Windsor. Just like a postcard. Isn't England charming.






Thanks Nic and Craig for such a great day!!!
