Christmas present weekend - Part 1

For our Christmas presents from Becky and Tom, David had a ticket to go and see England play Scotland at Twickenham with Tom, my other son in law Angus and my son Jonathan and I had a day in London with Becky and Charlotte. In order to maximise our time away we decided to take the caravan near Uxbridge, leaving it there on the Saturday to go and stay with the family at a hotel in Hounslow. We were join in Uxbridge by some very long standing friends on our first night who had just taken delivery of a motorhome. The weather was lovely and we enjoyed a very pleasant walk from the caravan site which took in a canal side pub.

 As you will see there were some very nice properties along the tow path. I've always fancied living along a canal. Pete and Iris moved on the next day so we occupied ourselves by taking a trip in to Windsor.

We were really taken with the shopping centre that is in the old station

After 'mooching' round it we walked down to the river and over the bridge to Eton, up to the end of the High Street before retracing our footsteps but instead of going back into town we took a 'right' over the bridge and found a spot in the park by the diamond jubilee fountain to have our sandwiches.

The afternoon was getting on by this time and it wasn't the warmest of days so we decided to call it a day and make our way back to the warmth of the caravan.

We were going to need an early start the next morning but you can read all about that in Part 2!
