December 12th

 

We spent the day at Hampton Court Palace (the third of the Historic Royal Palaces). This was a great time, and if you go, take the costumed character tours, and stay for the recreation of the historic events (it was at 2:30 the day we went).

Part of the Tudor buildings were knocked down by William and Mary. It was really interesting to stand in the court yard one direction was one time period and when you turned around you were looking at a completely different style of building.

There are some really great architectural features at Hampton Court. These are the ceilings of the arches surrounding the courtyards.

This clock will tell you the level of the tide in London.

We attempted the maze and actually saw the middle, but we weren't able to get there ourselves. The weather was beautiful, as you can tell, and some of the plants in the gardens were blooming.

After we got back, we did some shopping, and went to Sticky Fingers to hang out with some of the Scottish Country Dancers from Saturday. We were very happy to meet them as they treated us as friends Saturday and again today. We learned all about Christmas crackers and Pimms.
