8th of June 2001 Trip to Windsor Castle

Windsor Castle is the weekend residence of the Queen, about 20 miles west of London.  We took this trip the final day of our Orientation Class on a bus from RAF West Ruislip (outside the gate shown below).

Tim and I decided we would tour the inside of the castle when we had more time; here are pictures of the towers and outside walls.
