23rd 24th. May

Cloudy day yesterday but stayed mostly dry apart from the occasional heavy shower. Strolled around Stratford, taking in the Tudor architecture and dodging the tourists. It seems much quieter than the last time we visited. Maybe the season is still to get going.
Still deciding about going down the river. Level is on amber. Ok if it does not rain too much.
Stop press!
Saturday morning and the rain is hammering down. River level is up three inches and rising. Jury is still out about the river trip. We may have to stay put and monitor the situation.
Meanwhile there is plenty to see in Stratford. Had a look at Shakespear's birthplace yesterday and had a great stroll Down the river. The atmosphere around the river is so different to that on the canal. Will be a shame if  we can't try it.
