We arrived in Stratford at about lunch-time on Sunday and spent the afternoon just wandering around. We saw lots of swans and the statue of William Shakespeare and then went to a craft fayre - where Ian impressed me by buying a sunstone Buddha with his pocket money (and taking a loan against the next 6 weeks to be able to afford it. It was a really nice little statuette too :)
We didn't take a lot of pictures but here are few we thought appropriate.
|While we were walking
we found the American Fountain. It still has a
working water fountain on one side as well.
Not only is it a nice monument, we thought it appropriate for a photo of Ari :)
Here is the inscription
|Later we went to visit the
local museum. Its next door to the site of Shakespeare's
house and had quite a few interesting things. However, by the
time we had looked around Ian was a bit restless. I
am not sure he enjoyed Shakespeare's Knot garden in the
way it was intended.
