Got to Stratford Upon Avon late morning and walked about the main streets and nearby river and canals in the rain. Very pretty town and main claim to fame is being the birthplace of Shakespeare. Not my bag really even though I studied Othello in school.....but they are cashing in big time in this town. We did go through the cottage of Anne Hathaway, wife of said famous playwright. Very pretty with a thatched roof and gorgeous garden, we really enjoyed seeing it and hearing about life in that time.
Went onto Oxford and after some debate and driving opted for original booking of farm house b and b....not great but a clean bed for the night and the owners were friendly enough. Finding it was a challenge but we got to Charlton on Otmour eventually.
Big day in the end and we were both feeling worse for wear with yucky head colds....time to dose up on the echinacea or euthanasia as Kevin insists on calling it!
