Stratford-Upon-Avon

What better place to visit in Shakespeare's 500th year, than Stratford-Upon-Avon?

A few days into our Summer, I took my girls into Stratford. Last summer, they enjoyed seeing "As You Like It" it at The Swan. We took a look at the list of plays, but they were The Bard's less fun, more adult plays. We did check out the latest costume display while in the building though and made plans to see "The Comedy of Errors" in a couple of weeks time at The Globe, London.








We also stopped to chat to a lovely English Bobby and the kids discussed differences that they see with police officers back home in the States.

I was impressed by the discussion they had with him over US gun control. THEY were impressed by the lack of guns carried by the officer!






Outside The Swan playhouse, we fed the local namesakes and



watched the barges coming through the locks. It struck me that mooring up for a
Champagne performance in The Swan, would make for a very pleasant day. I added it to my bucket list.
