Hemel Hempstead

Hemel Hempstead is a small town just outside of London proper. We met the Guest family; Darla and Laura were companions for the first 6 months in Ireland.  They served us Jaffa Cakes (yum).  A delightful treat from the UK with a hint of orange jelly on a wafer sponge round cookie that is topped with chocolate.

We stayed at a very posh expensive hotel – well, it was worthy every dollar.  The bed was the most comfortable bed that I have ever slept on in my whole life.  I want one – they are hard to find.  

The next day we headed for Bristol but made a stop at Windsor Castle.

We watched the Queen’s guard come out of his phone-booth sized sentry box and do a routine that was very hilarious. He stomped his feet, moved his rifle about, walked about twelve feet out, walked back, did more stomping and backed into his box.
