No dangerous animals, no ghosts, no wild encounters of any kind today so the day belongs to pictures.
Yesterday Dennis, Elaine and Dave travelled 20 minutes or so out of Reading to see Maria, Dennis's and Elaine's oldest daughter who has recently started a one year teaching contract. Dawn and I simply lazed around in Reading...walking to a local pub restaurant for a nice meal.
By all accounts the visit with Maria was nice...Dennis and Elaine will see Maria and another daughter Danielle in London in a few weeks time. Should be a great visit for everyone!
Yesterday we also visited Mark's and Spencer's which was a real treat...just looking at the food and maybe buying a little candy!
Some pictures from the day...again a very quiet day
We had a small misadventure early when it was decided to go to Tesco to buy sandwiches. The rest of the group took a short cut based on a local's advice which took them off the official Thames River path. I must always stay on the official walking path that I have set out to do due to my unwavering high standards so I soldiered on! A short while later I left the official Thames path for Tesco.
The path was both really pleasant and well in my books boring today...depended on the stretch we were on. A few pictures...
Sometime during the day the planning Dave and I undertook paid off! See scooter photo!
There are some really nice houses along the Thames River as you would expect...few pictures...
|Be careful...once touched such a fence in France!|
|You thought I was joking about dangerous animals!|
|Mini railway station!|
Finally we were walking into Henley-on-Thames...each of us likely thinking the same thing. I've never seen a more more peaceful River setting...would be nice to return and stay here for a fortnight (British term although I am not sure how long a time period this is!)
Tomorrow on to Marlow...only three more walking days left in the adventure!
