We enjoyed a relaxing day after much travel and singing the past few days. After sleeping in and a late breakfast we drove to Stratford, stopping en route to visit Anne Hathaway's house. This wonderfully preserved home dates from the early 16th century and contains a few pieces of original furniture. The gardens surrounding the house still have blooming flowers, vegetables and all sorts of beautiful flora.
Stratford is still a vibrant city, and in the middle of town is the home of William Shakespeare. After a tour of the bard's childhood home we had the afternoon at leisure in Stratford. We returned to the hotel early and saw rain for the first time late this afternoon. Dinner will be enjoyed again tonight at our lovely English Inn.
Tomorrow we head for Oxford. Blessings to everyone reading this across the pond in the States!
Peace and blessings,
