WAIT!........Was that Queen Elizabeth???????

Good Morning....Tea, anyone?

What a day!  Up early and on the bus for a trip to Windsor and they stumbled upon a bit of a surprise.  Queen Elizabeth's 90th Birthday!

The tiny town of Windsor was taken over by over 50,000 people to get a glimpse of her Majesty

The Standard is flying....She's home!

Guard are at the ready!

Gardens are manicured!

So they toured the grounds

...and St. George's Chapel


Then it was time to possibly catch a glimpse of QEII herself

There's her Bentley.......There's Prince Philip!, she is sitting right next to him!

So, we continued to enjoy the beautiful town of Windsor before leaving for the Tower of London

The Tower of London - Home of the Crown Jewels

The famed Tower Bridge can be seen from the Tower of London
(often mistaken for the London Bridge, which can now be found in Lake Havasu, Arizona)

The famed Long Walk to Windsor Castle 
(Rumor has it President Obama will use this Rod to visit QEII tomorrow!)

Seasoned travelers 

What a great surprise Mrs. Maher received! Minutes after she took the pic above on the metro, she heard, "Where is Mrs Maher????" 
She looked up to see this gorgeous alum, Kesenia Rogoulina smiling at her! She's an alum studying abroad and saw kids wearing our tour jackets!!!! 
She had a great reunion with Claudia as well! She travelled with us to Italy in 2012


Stephen seemed to master the sticks..............

Tonight's show in the West End - Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!

On to Shakespeare's Birthplace tomorrow!

Another Birthday Party!
