Rural England





Rural England is much more peaceful and beautiful than I had imagined. It's my first foray into the countryside here, last time I was mostly in London. It's very green here and as we walked though the light summer rain along the tow path between Shiplake and Henley on Thames I could see why people flock to this area. I've just finished reading Notwithstanding by Louis de Bernières, a gentle recollection of past rural English life. I saw what he was talking about today in the scenes that unfolded as we walked, the small villages and lovely houses along the Thames.

The photos are from our walk, a lovely day out with some excellent company. Thanks Sarah, Anna and Olivia.
