UK Photos Part 2

The second day of travelling through the UK found us first in Stratford-Upon-Avon- the birthplace of William Shakespeare.  We had toured his home the last time we visited the UK so we didn't go in this time.  Instead we chose to walk the town, seeking lovely views and images.  
Shakespeare's Birthplace 

A view of the River Avon

The biggest scones we had ever seen!

Some lovely British Pottery - I brought some home with me!

Shakespeare's Memorial

This made me laugh - it reads, " Metropolitan Drinking Fountain and Cattle Trough Association." 
Oh! The flowers of Stratford!  I could have spent days touring the streets gazing at the cottage gardens, hanging baskets and cut flower displays!
My first experience with Pimms.  
We explored York Minster from every angle, too.  

Day three brought us to the Lake District.  Those pictures in my next post!


  1. I've never been to Stratford-Upon-Avon but it is on my list of places to visit. It looks so pretty and quaint, I love places like that and your photos are swaying me more so :) x x x x

  2. I live not far from Stratford but havent been for a while ... want to go back having seen your photos! Hope you enjoyed your Pimms!

  3. Soooooo jealous!!! Wow! You have toured so many places I long to someday see. Glad I get to tour them vicariously through you. Thanks for sharing this awesome adventure with us!


Thanks so much for popping by my little world. I'd love to hear from you. Comments make my day!!
