|Built in 1885, this double arched aqueduct bridge is the only one in North America still in use by automotive traffic.|
I had never been to Stratford before, and quickly fell in love with the place. It's quaint, beautiful and lively. It's "touristy" without feeling touristy. After we arrived we enjoyed lunch at "Surreal Soup", followed by a lovely walk along the river and through some of the town to take in some of the shops. We stayed at the boutique hotel, "The Parlour Inn", where we also enjoyed a delicious 3 course dinner as part of our package.
Friday, after breakfast at Madelyn's Diner, we did some more exploring/shopping around town before seeing the afternoon performance of "To Kill a Mockingbird" at the Stratford Festival Theatre. We headed back home to Toronto after the wonderful production.

|We saw these "interesting" flowers everywhere.|
|We found out they area called "Elephant Head"....Oh! I see that now!|
|After dinner we came back to our room to find "turn down" service and a rose on our beds.|
