Marley In Stratford-Upon-Avon - Day 2

Here are some more photos of my family outing to Stratford-Upon-Avon to celebrate my mums birthday.

I don't know if Shakespeare kept his money here but now its a branch of HSBC.

Statue of Stratfords world famous son by the marina.

Shakespeare's house, now a museum and part of a visitors centre. Too expensive for us to visit!

People enjoying a glass of wine in the afternoon sun on a barge. What a life.

A native American pan pipe player! These guys are often seen in towns up and down the country, trying to sell a CD or two.

I hope you've enjoyed the photos of Stratford-Upon-Avon I've shown over the last few days. Back to Cheltenham tomorrow.

I love this series on Stratford! Great photos.

The canal boat I assume is on one of the waterways? You know, I really wouldn't expect to see a Native American in traditional dress if I visited Stratford on Avon. How incongruous!

I like your choice of photographs and wonder at the Native American. You just don't expect to see him there.

What a great family outing! If that Native American pan pipe music is what I am thinking of, I like it, it's very relaxing!

An interesting selection of pictures. Looks like old William is writing out a cheque.

I enjoyed these very much, Marley. In 1999 I had the good fortune to take a summer acting course at Oxford, taught by members of the RSC. Part of our summer was a day at Stratford-Upon-Avon. I took the tour of Shakespeare's house (loved it), but didn't see any Native Americans. We saw a terrific production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" in the evening. Our day there wasn't long enough!

Lovely sceneries in your photo. I have heard of Stratford-Upon-Avon a lot but this is the first time I've seen photos of the town.

As for the American Indian, is he for real or is it a gimmick to sell CDs? Perhaps he's the descendant of Pocahontas.
