Thursday 21st June ...... Hampton Court and other things!

Yesterday we went to Hampton Court (among other things) but the first stop was to change some money for Tin - I'm not sure what the lady behind the counter thought of the 'funny money' that was handed to her - but Tin is fast getting used to the English currency....... 


So, after getting the money we got in the car and headed off for Hampton Court .... 


Yayyyy..... we arrived and here I am holding my ticket - can't wait to get in but Tin and Raven love doing this photo thingy!!! .... You'd think they would know what I looked like by now *sighs* 


Ooops but first stop has to be the loo - this bear needs to tinkle - and it's the nicest location for a toilet that this bear has seen ..........and to think this is in London!!! 


Into the Garden ......... spot the Bear!!!! 


I love this picture..... although one gust of wind and I'd have had an early bath!!! ........ C'mon ladies let's do the Palace!!!! 

Hampton Court was home to several Kings and Queens but the chiefly remembered one is Henry VIII - and a few of his wives!!!! ..... It's huge ... much bigger than the Bear Cave and they have some stairs these were called the Queens Stairs....


Ooops Raven told me off for doing this - apparently I have to WALK down the stairs ... what a quaint idea! 

This is the Kings Dining Room ... Dining means food right..... Pffft I get served quicker at Tansy's!!!!! - Hmmmm - Queen of Puddings ..... or would that be King of Puddings????? 



















There is a LOT of walking around this Palace ..... time to cool the paws in the fountain ..... a little help please Tin!!!! 













Lunch time - time for this Bear to stock up on some cake - WOOT I got a Brit Cake - better put the shades on tho I'm beginning to get recognised ........... 



















Ahhhh - this is better - a feast fit for a Bear ...... Now Serfs bring on the Dancing Girls ....*clap, clap*















Tin that's cheating - you can't move that one there *sighs* - guess all that walking has got to her............














I'll just have a wee rest .......... this chair looks comfy - and no one wants to sit on it............. 













Awww, Raven says it's time to go and head to the shops to get souvenirs for the Bear Clan back home .... I'd rather stay and eat more cake but Tin assures me that there will be more cake tomorrow ..........

Tune in tomorrow for more Tales from the Travelling Witch .... 

love Bear, Tin and Raven x x x
