Blenheim Palace


My new found friends and I (I meaning me and millie) headed to Bleheim Palace today. It was the PERFECT day to go! There was a beautiful morning fog lurking over the Palace. As we approached, the Palace started to emerge from the thick fog and it was incredible. We headed inside to see the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. The ceilings were covered with 24k gold throughout. We then took a break and ate lunch at a cute little cafe that over looked one of the many extravagant gardens. When we were finished we headed out to wander the rose garden and the rest of the estate. As we were leaving I had promised Millie that we could ride on the train, but it was a near fatal mistake! She dropped Pablo on the train tracks while we were moving! She nearly had a heartache and I was pretty sure he was going to get creamed. Luckily he fell to the side and on our way back we were able to rescue Pablo! There were two of us ready to snatch him off the track in case the 1st person missed. I don't think I have seen a happier little girl as I did when I handed Millie her precious Pablo. She said, "Hooray Pablo" and gave him a hug tighter then I have ever received myself. She reminded me of the creature on the Lord Of The Rings whenever he would get a hold of the ring.
