|Goofing at Fountain Court|
FOUNTAIN COURT - Why they called it Fountain Court when there were no visible fountains, we don't know. It was quite beautiful, though with columns around the walkway on all four sides (it was a court in the center of the palace. It was part of the 18th Century rebuilding of parts of the Tudor Palace by William and Mary.
GHOSTLY REMINDER - Last year, this was where I (Rob) felt a ghostly sword slicing through my shoulder- a message that a ghost who was killed that way was still walking the halls. To Read that story from our 2012 trip: http://rob-tom-dolly-franklin.blogspot.com/2012/06/england-trip-day-4-part-4-hampton-court.html

THE PERFECT GARDEN STATUE - As we were walking the William and Mary side of Hampton Court, we came across the perfect statue for our garden. We're on a quest to find a statue of a scantily clad, muscular man like the one we stumbled upon here. In fact, I've made a special insert of TOM'S FACE so you can get the feeling for how we felt. FUNNY!!!
|Look at Tom's face posing next to that hot statue!|
CORRIDORS - We were fascinated with the workmanship of the haunting corridors that ran at the base of the palace. If you're a fan of the Tudors Television program, you will notice that the corridors they walked through looked just like this!
