A GREAT BED AND BREAKFAST
We stayed at a nice bed and breakfast called "Langdon House." (www.langtonhouse.co.uk/) We got to know Paul Fogg well and still stay in touch with him - what a great guy! Paul and his wife Sonja run the B&B. It was a short walk to downtown Windsor, very convenient, quiet and comfortable, and breakfast was great. The hospitality can't be beat, that's for sure!
THE DINNER CHALLENGE - After checking in, we decided to venture out into Windsor and get dinner. One thing we learned quickly was that some pubs didn't serve dinner on Mondays or it started late for some reason. One pub told us that dinner is served starting at 7 p.m., and we were famished, so we kept looking. We wound up walking into downtown Windsor to a restaurant/pub called the "51" that looked like a 1980s disco with huge 6 x 6 foot pictures on the wall and disco music playing. It was a little strange, but the fish and chips was good!
WHAT IS WINDSOR?
Windsor is an affluent town in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead in Berkshire, England. It's famous for being the location of the Royal Family's Windsor Castle, one of their official residences. Wndsor is located about 21 miles west of Charing Cross, London and south of the River Thames.
WAKING UP ON THE LAST FULL DAY:
May 15, 2012 was our last full day in England. During breakfast we met a woman and her mother visiting from Massachusetts (where Rob is from) and Texas, respectively. Small world.
As I've said before, the weather was very chilly for May. That morning it was cloudy, damp, windy and actually bitterly cold! The temperature was 37 Fahrenheit at 9 a.m. and stayed only in the 40s during the entire day. The wind chills were in the 30s during the morning and it was cold! It felt like winter time.
