After some much needed rest my Beloved had one more day before work started, so he headed to Stratford Upon Avon. He has traced his Webb family tree all the way back to here, so he was excited to do some sight seeing in this area.

A market town in south Warwickshire, Stratford Upon Avon sits along the River Avon and is best known as the birthplace of William Shakespeare.

As morning broke, he was drinking in the countryside.

These fields of yellow were beautiful and expansive but he was up before anything was open so he found a park and went for a walk on a few walking trails to wait for businesses to open.

Couples were out for their morning walk and as they would pass by they would say “Cheers!”

Which my man from West Texas found pretty neat. He should’ve replied “Howdy!” and that would have really woke them up!

We have nothing like these walking trails here in West Texas, so this was a nature feast of a walk for him.

Tracing your family history is an amazing process, and going back to where your ancestors started and were rooted is a pretty amazing experience. I’ve got lots to share with you about the Webb family in the coming posts, so stay tuned!
