We are pet sitting here in Stratford with Enzo the border terrier. We sat for Enzo last year and were happy to be asked to take care of him again this summer.
This is the home town of Shakespeare (1564 -1616) and it is a quaint and walkable town. It is amazing how many of the places in Shakespeare’s birthplace are still preserved and open to the public. I did a lot of visiting of Shakespeare’s places last year, so this year I am exploring the city and the historical places that are around this city.
The entire town resolves around Shakespeare’s life and work.
There are lots of Tudor homes that are still intact and they are very interesting to see in town.
It is also the home of the Royal Shakespeare Company. We will be going to a play early next week.
We walked Enzo the dog along the River Avon today. It is so beautiful here.
There are so many lovely swans floating in the river. As we were walking home and we passed Shakespeare’s church; he is buried inside.
I really find it amazing to walk the streets where Shakespeare grew up, married, had children and was buried.
