A horseman came riding by

A trip to Windsor Great Park during a visit to Elder Son, Daughter-in-law and GrandSon.Imagine having this as your front drive ... (that's Windsor Castle in the far distance).
Oh, not any old horseman but George III, whose statue stands at the end of the Long Walk (nearly 3 miles). The statue, commonly known as The Copper Horse, is actually made of bronze-clad iron.

You had me there. Great perspective.

Next time you are in Windsor Great Park be sure to visit the USA (without all the hassle of immigration etc).

There is an exclave of the USA down near Runnymede Meadows, fenced off around the rowan tree (JFK memorial).

Take a thermos with you and then you can brag to your friends that you went to the USA just for a cup of tea ;-)

Been there, done that :-)
