Weekend in Stony Stratford

Just back from a lovely weekend in Stony Stratford visiting my friend, Sharon, who has only been living  in her new home for a few months.   Stony Stratford is near Milton Keynes and is a very little town.  There are quite a few little independent shops, a few pubs and restaurants and a growing number of charity shops.  

I didn't really get an opportunity to take any photos but we did have a walk around the town and along the River Ouse.  We then popped into one of the pubs that does a really good afternoon tea where I had the best butterfly fairy cakes I have had since I my grandmother was alive.    In the evening we had a meal at the local Thai restaurant, which was very nice and not expensive.  

On the Sunday we had a walk in some woods, but the weather was a bit chilly to stay out too long.  I did manage to get the camera out (briefly) when I saw this tree - great colours.  

We went back home for a home cooked roast dinner.    It really was good weekend and Stony Stratford is worth a visit
