Stratford wander with the tourists
(Summary blog only. Last full blog was Day 0368).
The wedding we’re attending isn’t until this afternoon. So we lingered over breakfast – a real treat – then took a wander round Stratford.
There was plenty of interest to see, and literally thousands of tourists packed in to see it. It was an enjoyable excursion though Stratford was looking a bit like it was in need of a good wash-and-brush-up, and I did find the masses of humanity a bit off-putting. Quite a contrast to the hills of Wicklow. Anyway, that’s enough for now as I need to stop and make myself look beautiful for the afternoon’s festivities. But a very enjoyable and relaxing start to the day so far.
