While out in the Cotswolds we made a quick trip over to see where our dear Mr. Shakespeare was born. Man, they’ve really milked that little fact for all it’s worth, everything in this little town was Shakespeare themed, even the McDonalds.
The kids barely know who Shakespeare is or why he is so cool, but I figure sometime in the future they might get it and be really impressed with these photos of them standing where he might have walked. This is the house where people believe Mr. Shakespeare was born. I’m sure it’s been restored a bunch over the past 400 plus years since his birth, but still, it was cool to see. We didn’t go inside, too many babies and buggies in our party.I just liked all of these half timbered houses along the main streets. Charlie didn’t I guess. And I liked Emmeline’s poses. Always posing, that girl!Hazel is in front of Halls Croft, where Shakespeare daughter, Susanna lived with her husband. This one (above) is for the middle school oral presentation on Shakespeare life. These two are standing inside of the Holy Trinity Church where Will was baptized and buried. That’s his grave behind them.And here Peter is inside of the church.We did some nice walking and exploring and playing along the river.Isn’t that house (above) awesome!? I loved being a place so old and steeped with so much history.
And to top the day off right we stopped at a fish and chips and pizza place for some cheap Pizza to fill us up during the ride home.
