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.
