Stratford Year 4

Thursday August 21st Drove through Toronto to pick up our new painting from Brad Eyre. Got to Stratford and checked into Duncan Hall B&B. This is the first year that we're staying in one spot. Lunch at the York St. Kitchen. Delicious as always. Saw "The Taming Of The Shrew" at The Festival Theatre. Very interesting take on Katherine and Petruchio which I think successfully steered their relationship away from outright abuse. Caught a late bite to eat at Cafe 10 and had some drinks at Down The Street.

The Taming Of The Shrew Moby Dick Romeo & Juliet

Friday August 22nd Hilarious breakfast. Cereal with rice milk. We won't be returning to Duncan Hall B&B. Did some shopping and had lunch at Veg Out (which are the new tenants of the green restaurant on Erie St.). It used to be an amazing noodle place, but it's still good. Saw "Moby Dick" at the Studio Theatre. It was basically interpretive dance, no dialogue. Amanda liked it, but I very much didn't. I don't recall the no-dialogue detail being advertised in its online description. I'll have to be more careful about Studio productions in the future. Dinner at Bently's.

Duncan Hall B&B

Saturday August 23rd Spent the morning at the Farmer's Market. Saw Romeo & Juliet at The Festival Theatre. It opened and closed in modern dress, but the bulk of it was in period costume. I really like Shakespeare in modern settings. Drove to Bobcageon for the night, then home the next day.
