Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Autumn in Henley

When I was walking the Thames path in 2013 I promised myself that I would return to Henley-on-Thames in the Autumn to see the beautiful colours by the river. So a couple of weeks ago, before I went to Vienna, I traveled back to Henley. However, I was too early to see all the changes of colour.



Nevertheless it was a beautiful day for a walk by my favourite river and was able to admire the many reflections in the water.

  1. What a great place to walk with just a hint of autumnal colourings. Funnily enough my blog today is about Henley Beach here in Australia & I guess it was most probably named after your Henley in England but two very different places.

  2. Looking out across water creates incredible moods in your psyche. It is an amazing process. Almost as peaceful as sitting and stroking your lapdog.

  10. Beautiful reflections! I particularly like the swans - there are a couple of remnant populations of imported mute swans down here, but our native Aussie swans are black so the white ones look impossibly ethereal!!
