Bank holiday weekend was variable as far as the weather was concerned. However, we managed a couple of hours of bliss walking in the piece and quiet around some grounds bordering the river Thames.
Starting with the siting of a Grebe that was foraging for vegetation to take back to it’s mate who was sitting on a nest contain two eggs (yes, we actually saw them).
Quite near this location were a few row boats. However, they were minus anyone to use them.
Moving on from here we moved out into the countryside and found ourselves passing a tree that had been planted in memory of a loved one.
At our furthest point we happened upon a slow stretch of water covered with duck weed. It looked just as though you could easily walk across it. No one tried!
On our way back and nearing the end of our walk we spotted an area set aside for picnickers. However, as you can see there was space for more.
