Shakespeare, my hero

Yesterday was my mum's birthday. Mum and Dad had a surprise for us. We were going to the birthplace of William Shakespeare! On the way there we stopped. We weren't at Shakespeare's house; we were at our first castle!

Here are some photos of the day:
 The arrow-slit and the tower

Jacob, Elsie and me near the gates

Then we got into the car and went to Stratford-upon-Avon, where we stopped at a cafe named after a line from one of Shakespeare's plays. After lunch we went to Shakespeare's birthplace. Here are some pictures of that:

 In the kitchen

 Next to the window from the birth-room where people (including some very famous people) used to sign their names in the glass

Outside the front door.

In the knot garden on the site of the house called New Place where Shakespeare lived after 1610.

Then we went home and had dinner.

 This is Mum with her cake that I helped Dad to cook.

  1. What a great day Bec. I loved this house when we first visited with your Mum when she was little (and also when she was a teenager). Looks like a great cake. Love Grandad
