Hotel visitor contemplates her day

This town was my parents’ favorite in all of England. They talked about it a lot. The Patient Spouse and I took my dad on a last trip to England after my mom died, and of course he planned a trip around this town. And then, when the Patient Spouse and I took Miss Hannah Harvey on a trip to England, we wanted to go back and see it again.

All that aside, what do you suppose that woman in the window is thinking about. Maybe it’s “why do SO MANY Texans think they need to keep coming here?”

  1. Ah, Bourton on the Water….last time I visited would have been 3 decades ago….first went with my parents when I was young. Horribly touristy now, I would think


    • I feel like the town center (along the water, if you will) is probably not changed much. But between our two visits, I could tell that there was quite a bit of new development on the edges. (The last time we were there, it was very nice for an hour or so, without many people around. Then a tour bus that seemed like it had at least a thousand people on it pulled up and they overran the place. Later, that same day, we saw the same people in Stratford*. At least we were staying mostly ahead of them…”)

      *My granddaughter was WAY into Shakespeare and that was the place she most wanted to visit. She used her own money and bought herself a Complete Works, which she then carried around town with the title turned out, to impress the locals, I presume. She was 10 years old at the time. It was so endearing, and I will never forget it.
