the further adventures of Nigel (Saturday and Sunday)


Nigel the Charity Pig enjoys a final weekend of holiday-making in Stratford-upon-Avon, starting with the next to last of the yummy breakfasts at the Adelphi. Nigel wonders about all the pork on the plate, though:

And then it was off for some final touring of the Cotswolds. In the village Wootton Wawen, just a few miles from Stratford, is St. Peter’s, a Saxon-era church:


The ladies at St. Peter’s were getting the church ready for their harvest festival. Nigel hopes pork is not going to be on the menu here:

Then it was off to the village of Henley in Arden, which is so unbe-freakin’-lievably quaint:

But what Henley is really famous for is ice cream:

Mmm, so many flavours! Which to choose?

(I had one scoop of apple-and-cinnamon and one scoop of clotted-cream. Delish!)

In the evening, it was back to the Dirty Duck for one last bout of eating, drinking, people watching, and friend making. No, that’s not Bob Hoskins, but FlickFilosopher.com reader teddestratford with Nigel at the Duck:

On Sunday, we took one last stroll around Stratford. On the waterside of the river Avon, with the lovely patio of the Dirty Duck in the background:

And a last cream tea:

Then it was off to the airport for the trip home:

Nigel is carryon:

so he doesn’t need a passport.

Not the overhead bin!

Okay, he gets to travel in style:

(A bit more with Nigel.)

And Nigel’s adventures in New York are about to begin…
