We were so lucky with the weather it was just glorious, we walked into town and had a little mooch around the lovely shops and then headed to Sainsbury’s to purchase our picnic. Once we found a spot under a tree, which was half in the sun and half in the shade we set up our little area.
It was so beautiful, having chilled family time, the boys had the freedom to run around whilst we looked on. Watching boats and duck going up and down the river. The boys started to get a little restless but then discovered they could take photos in the reflections of their sunglasses and went on to spend a good hour playing around with photography, it was great to watch them exploring their creative side and kept them busy giving us a little time to sunbathe.
Once they had exhausted this we decided to pack up and hire a riverboat, I must say I wasn’t over keen but went along with it. But do you know what? I loved it, it was idyllic, and we hired a motorboat rather than a rowing boat, as I had no intention of rowing when they all got bored. Trust me this was a good move.
We spent half an hour driving up and down the River Avon taking in the stunning scenery that Shakespeare would have enjoyed hundreds of years ago. Chris did all the driving but did let the boys have a little go for a minute or two each. Which they both loved, but I felt safer with Chris in control.
I would definitely recommend this as day out; it was such a stunning place to visit. Stratford-Upon-Avon is such a beautiful town, which is extremely chilled out. We all had a wonderful day on the banks of the river, and a wonderful few days in Stratford, and cant wait to visit again.
