Henley-on-Thames

Wednesday 29 July         Overcast, scattered light showers.

After a good night’s sleep, we both woke at approximately our normal times and after taking care of the mundane things like groceries and washing, Janet took us to visit Henley-on-Thames, approximately 10 miles from Maidenhead.
