An early start at 5:45 a.m. to be ready to leave by 7:15 a.m. Our travel today would be to Stratford Upon Avon, home of William Shakespeare, and Warwick Castle.

Stratford Upon Avon is a beautiful, picturesque town. They have done a great deal to communicate about William Shakespeare’s life there, his home and his friends and family. We walked the entire town. Going through Shakespeare’s home and birthplace was a very good experience. We loved the town. We did have coffee at Starbuck’s and Carol shopped for books in a book store next door.

Warwick Castle was about 20 kms. further northeast from Stratford Upon Avon. It is a recreation of how the castle would have looked in its day. The castle is well preserved and they do a good job of showing it off.

Today is July the fourth. America celebrates its independence day. I pray that the Lord will continue to send Godly leaders to lead our nation. My prayer today for you is that you will be everything the Lord created you to be. Jesus is Lord.
