Bourton-on-the-Water was probably the most picturesque village we visited, but because of that, it was packed with tourists and overpriced shops. It was still fun to wander around, though!
We went in and everything smelled kind of awful...
I was playing around with my camera settings, because I wanted to show how awesome it was that there were flowers blooming everywhere!
More ducks, sleeping this time, haha.
This is an example of a stacked wall; aside from the top there is no binding material and it holds up just by years of weighted rocks pressing on one another. Pretty incredible that they're still standing, even after 1000 years! I had to try and see how sturdy it was, and I was very impressed.
Now we come to our final stop, Stratford-upon-Avon. We got a little tour of Nash's house, which was where Shakespeare's Great-Granddaughter lived. The house itself was right beside the house where Shakespeare spent the latter half of his life, and where he eventually died... Unfortunately that house was ripped down and there is just a garden left.
One side of Nash's house, from the garden area.
This was Shakespeare's personal orchard.
There were these modern art statues of all his plays scattered about, which was pretty cool.
I loved all of the Tudor-style homes everywhere. I took a picture of about 20 of them!
This is where we stopped for creamed tea, the shoppe was adorable.
And the snacks were delicious and filling.
Even though we were the last ones to get back on the bus, we had to stop to get one last picture of a Shakespeare statue!
