Day One: Hampton Court Palace

In spite of the title, don't expect daily updates!  But I'll start off strong.  I'm going on 30 hours without sleep right now.  I think all those long hours working two jobs is paying off!

Anyway, here are some photos so far.

Not Hampton Court Palace.  Just our home away from home.

Here we go...

This is more like it.

First stop is, naturally, the kitchens of King Henry VIII.  There were two of these massive the first of 3 huge rooms.

Yes, we are in England.  Just a reality check.

Out to the gardens...Smurfy trees!

The kids stop to enjoy a luscious English garden.


A real golden gate

A final view of the the Georgian facade.
