On the last full day of my parents’ visit we drove up to Blenheim Palace, about 90 minutes north of our house.
Steve and I had been here before in 2004 so we just spent the day exploring the vast grounds. Mom and Dad went inside the house. It is a fabulous palace, vast and grand. It has an interesting history as the birthplace of Winston Churchill.
We saw an interesting exhibit in one of the stable houses that exhibited a lot about the workings of the vast farm – if you’re ever there I recommend finding it in the pleasure garden.
We headed back in the late afternoon, we were all pretty tired, and had a dinner of tortellini before Mom started packing the bags to head home in the morning.
Monday they headed for home, I dropped them off at Heathrow in the morning. Probably not worth its own post.
I think Mom & Dad enjoyed their trip.
