Riding the Train in England

Train, England

Traveling on the train to visit Dover, England, home of Dover Castle.
Looking out the window, I don’t know what town is visible out of the window on the journey.

While in London, which one will he choose?

The Royal Pavilion in Brighton

Brighton, England Royal Pavilion

When I first visited Brighton, England it was either 1984 or 1985.
(Don’t recall which year at the moment.)
At the time, the Royal Pavilion was undergoing repairs and a facelift.
The palace was covered and hidden from view.
I returned in 2012 and this time it’s beauty was in full display.

Windsor Castle


Photograph made several years ago.
Originally with 35mm color film, scanned with Nikon Scanner.

I love the Royal Guard standing by the Castle and the Shadow of the Soldier on the horse.
I wonder if the Queen was inside at the time.

Dover Castle is on the south coast of England on the English Channel.
I wish I were king 500 years ago so I could behead somebody.

London Parliament at Night

It’s been awhile since I’ve been to London. I think it’s time to go back.

I Wasn’t Invited To The Royal Wedding!

So I arrive at Heathrow airport early this morning and head to Buckingham Palace for the Royal Wedding. My first question is, “Can I be early?” I don’t see anyone! I assumed that someone had to be interested in this event but I wasn’t complaining. I was at the front of the line and had the best seat in the house.

So I’m waiting and waiting and waiting and finally a friendly elderly British gentleman asks me what I’m waiting for. (It must’ve been real obvious.) I answered, ‘The Royal Wedding, of course!” He says, “My fine fellow, that was yesterday! Didn’t you know?” I’m stunned at this point and pull out my invitation to see how I could get it so wrong. But no, there it was in black and white – the date said April 30th. My British friend looked at it and commented, “That certainly looks real. I guess Prince William didn’t want you to come.” and then he walked away.

I stood there flabbergasted. I was deliberately given the wrong date by the Royals. Now I’m mad.

I’m Moving

Bought a new home yesterday. Came with its own security guard wearing red.
