Day Trip to Runneymede, Windsor Castle, and Stoke Poges!!!



Here is our whole group!! Runnymede is where the Magna Carta was signed, so pretty important stuff! And the monument was in the middle of beautiful green meadows and hills. It reminded me of Jane Austen's movies :) So amazing!!!















Windsor Castle where the Queen lives sometimes in the summer. It was way cool and such a sunny warm day!!





















In front of the castle is a long cement walk that stretches like two miles. We had fun jumping around and taking randomly funny pictures. Pretty much we were just goofing around like silly American girls haha. I had a grand ol' time!









Last stop was at Stoke Poges, a cute little town where we visited a churchyard that a known British poet, Thomas Gray, based the poem Elegy on. We had a modern British poem give us a tour around the place. Then we went into the Memorial Gardens, which were of course beautiful!! Loved it sooooo much :)
