River walk




Gorgeous weather last week, bright sunshine and 22oC - very unusual for the UK in April, so we took advantage and went to Stratford. We started with the circular walk around the Recreation Ground - the Royal Shakespeare Company Theatre, across the river.




The swans had finished feeding by the opposite bank and swam towards us for more




disappointed that we had nothing to offer, they moved off




There is only one bridge that connects the two parts of the town, so the ferry was busy




docking.




This is an extremely pleasant walk




willows on our left





looking up




lots of people about







the weir




and a lone swan.




We took the path on our left




spring in its full glory




another left turn at the end of the path




and we joined the old tramway







as we neared the end of our walk we could see the big wheel, a new addition to the town - is it temporary or is it permanent? We do not know




We crossed the bridge that links the two parts of the town




the RSC as seen from the bridge




we crossed the bridge and from the other side of the bank we got another view of the wheel




the swans were busy searching for food.

We walked into town, looked around some shops, including the new ceramics gallery, had a bite to eat and made our way home. I had a huge grin on my face - it was one of those days when everything seems to be perfect, like magic. The feeling stayed with me for the rest of the day.
