In light of the upcoming Duke of Wellington Tour
, I've been wandering down Memory Lane in anticipation of the fun ahead. No matter how many times I return to England, I'm always excited to be returning. Each visit creates new memories and each tour establishes new friendships. Here are just a few of my fondest memories:
New Year's Eve in London with my daughter, Brooke
Crossing Millenium Bridge
Riverside at the Tower
Catching a glimpse of the Queen at Windsor Castle with Victoria and Hester
In the back of an Edinburgh cab - we couldn't understand a word the cabbie said!
Viewing the Art and Love Exhibition with Victoria at the Queen's Gallery
Bucolic splendour in the English countryside
Touring the English countryside
Victoria and I being treated to a view of the annual Naked Bike Ride whilst
minding our own business at Apsley House
Dinner with our tour group on the Coaching Tour
Finding this Staffordshire figurine of the Duke at a shop in Cecil Court
Mudlarking on the River Thames
Unexpectedly coming face to face with Prince Charles wearing full dress uniform
in the Mall. Really. He was wearing the uniform, not me.
And what is one of my most treasured memories, highwaymen holding up author Diane Gaston at Belvoir Castle during the Coaching Tour. Diane has signed up for The Duke of Wellington Tour
in September - we can't wait to start the journey and make new memories. Won't you join us and be a part of it all?
