our good friends dave and em came for dinner last night.  they were our first guests this year due to our domestic reshaping, which is finally nearing an end.

it was great to catch up and also to play articulate which is a game i’d forgotten all about

kezia said this sign must mean elderly people are people over 30 years old.  but she also told me people put cucumbers on their eyes so they look like people with cucumber eyes, so i don’t believe everything she says.  so i suggest you don’t either.

i had the day off yesterday and it was back to the thames path after a couple of months off due to construction/destruction and illness.  we were all fighting fit (and nearly builder-free) so our short reintroductory 4 mile walk from wallingford to moulsford

here was the first view of the thames as we crossed the bridge in wallingford

what do you do if you haven’t got any signs with the arrows pointing the right way ?  turn one of the other ones sideways obviously.

we passed fairmile hospital, which is now inmate less. it used to be owned by the Berkshire Mental Health Trust and now looks set for regeneration

there was lots of nature on this stretch.  much of it stingy nettles unfortunately.

and lovely flat water (notice the woman at the front and man at the back of this boat – togetherness)

at moulsford we stopped at the Beetle and Wedge pub which was a very posh restaurant, but slightly less inviting for a post walk drink.  but the view and drinks were still very welcome.

esther, kezia and I went on the Henley Arts Trail yesterday.  I didn’t take too many photos as it was too wet, and people’s art is their copyrights etc.

it really was a great day out.  it was fascinating to see the different types of artists and see their studios.  everyone was so nice and jolly.

so, all in all, another great bank holiday weekend activity !
