Last month, we travelled to Stratford, Ontario for the day. Like Stratford in England, the town is on a river called the Avon. Although the main attraction in town is theatre – primarily Shakespeare – the village has a few other things to recommend it.
There is a walkway on both sides of the water in the Avon River Park. Small bridges and islands add to the picturesque setting, which is also sprinkled with memorial benches and wildflowers.
Along the water there are lots of water birds – seagulls, several breeds of ducks, geese, and swans. As I wandered near a little cove, a solitary swan put on a lovely display for me.
A lovely way to finish our day before dinner!
