A performed place meme if there ever was one, The Long Walk to Windsor Castle was part of a longer walk from the Egham train station to Windsor. This one-way stroll, all on foot, took about 3 hours. The weather was very fine. Sights of the day: a muddy Cooper's Hill with a great view of London from near the 'land rights' camp; the view of the castle itself from the 'horse' statue that marks the beginning of the long walk segment proper; and the general jumble of dogs, joggers, and children, less dense towards the statue, but more and more so as one moved away from it. At the main road it was apparent we were back in the land of tourists, which made the bus ride out of Windsor all the more enjoyable.
