River walk



Two hours of sunshine in the middle of a rainy day was an opportunity to go for a walk in Stratford.




We parked the car at the Recreation Ground and started our river walk - the Shakespeare theatre across the river, and the sun reflecting in the water




The bandstand on our left




Feeding time







The Holy Trinity Church





It's a wonderful walk and one of our favourites




there was some flooding




including the path - but not enough to affect our walk




the river was so high that the weir had effectively disappeared




looking back.




After a while the path was too muddy for comfortable walking so we turned left and took the path along the fields





that leads to the Old Tramway




the Recreation Ground on our left - you can see the spire of the Holy Trinity Church in the distance






we had come full circle and, as we were not ready to go home yet, we decided to cross the bridge over the river




the view from the bridge




the theatre




a perfect line formation




I sat on a bench for a while, soaking up the sunshine




with the theatre on my right




Someone came to feed the swans - hundreds came.
