A Postcard from Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire - 9th September 2018

It's the day after Grandad's RAF Reunion AGM and dinner at the Stratford Manor Hotel, whereupon after breakfast we check out and head in to Stratford to show Fred and Harry Shakespeare's house, as well as walk around the river and go up on a ferris wheel. Then, after lunch, it's back home.
