Henley-on-Thames Hike

A group of us went on a 10 mile circular hike from Henley-on-Thames train station (check out the name of the diner - Tubbies). It was a glorious sunny day. We went at a brisk clip as some of our party were keen on getting back to London in time for their Bill Bryson lecture. That did not stop us from enjoying a wonderful pub lunch in the town of Hambleden. I took the picture of the mobile library to remind me to stop whinging (my British vocabulary is increasing by leaps and bounds) about the size and hours of the Kew Gardens library. The highlight of this walk for me was crossing the river at the Hambleden lock and the long flat path along the Thames.
