"Oklahoma", Stratford Festival, Stratford, ON

Gord and I went to Stratford today to see Oklahoma, part of the Stratford Festival. As usual, we took the train down and back.

Raised in big-hearted turn-of-the century Oklahoma territory, spunky Laurey Williams spurns the affections of cowboy Curly McLain – only to fall into the hands of malevolent hired hand, Jud Fry. When unexpected tragedy strikes, farmers and cowmen alike must confront the untamed wilderness of the human heart.

Though the play was okay (I gave it 6/10, Gord gave it 7/10), we had a fun day!

After the play, we walked along the Avon River.

We stopped at Rheo Thompson Candies cuz LeeAnn recommended that we go there. I bought some chocolates but haven't tasted them yet.

We were going to have supper at Othello's ...

But because we stopped to take a picture, we ended up in a line-up for a table (the couple ahead of us got the last table) so we moved on to Sid's instead.

There's a bar we stop at every time we go to Stratford called Shenanigan's. It's been fighting for it's liquor license for the last three years and finally got it recently. So we had a couple drinks there. It's handy to the train station.

No cherries ... but I got other chocolates which I still haven't tried yet.

That should be 6,5 points - not that bad :-)

And what a blast of a pub crawl you had afterwards - thanks for sharing!

Wishing you and Gord a great week ahead.

Sounds like a good day!

At least you have a decent public transportation system. Ours is horrible! You cannot get anywhere easily or in timely manner and we only have limited bus service- no trains or trams.

I am living vicariously through you guys! Seriously! This sounds like my kind of night. Wonderful photos, all of them. I would love to take a walk and end up with some chocolate ;x)
