Rowboats in Shakespeare Coutry
Stepping off the train from London, my family and I, joined by our dear friend Elle Sandes, enjoyed about a ten minute walk to the boathouse in Stratford-Upon-Avon.
Nick Birch had given me great directions and I knew just how to get to his location.
As we reached the end of the bridge, and his operation came into view,
I saw the fleet of rowboats that Nick and his staff rent out to folks wanting to get out on the water for a pleasant row on the river.
Simple but elegant, these rowboats are timeless classics.
I imagine that countless dates, romantic picnics, and of course,
proposals have taken place on the waters of the Avon in these boats.
