Birthday Weekend in Stratford-upon-Avon

For my birthday we went to Stratford-upon-Avon to see an excellent production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" at the Courtyard theatre.

On the Saturday we hired bikes and went out for a 40 mile cycle in glorious sunshine with stops for lunch at The Howard Arms (with a couple of pints of Hook Norton) and afternoon tea in a converted railway carriage.

I was amused by the pub's menu which warned "Fish may contain bones. Puddings contain calories".

Happy belated birthday, Mark. It looks like a perfect day in the country.
