A short walk

Apologies for the lack of post we're both laid up with colds (George of course has man-flu, but I'm ok!)

Yesterday the sun was shining and I felt in need of some fresh air so I wrapped up warm and took a short walk around the marina and lock ...

 Two more different birds to the feeders today
Looking downstream towards Marlow
Some interesting snippets from the information board that I wasn't aware of ....
  • ~ there has been a mill here since at least 1086 until the current                       building ceased work in 1952.
  • ~ the first Oxford/Cambridge boat race took place between Hambleden Lock and Henley Bridge in 1829 but moved to London soon after.
  • ~ Henley Regatta was established in 1839 to bring trade to the area.

 Looking upriver towards Henley on Thames

And there he was ... gone!

Back to Still Rockin's warm fire and a hot drink ... bliss!

Thanks Nev, we're both feeling a lot better now, maybe all the walking we did around London helped!
