Ruth and I had a lovely day out in Henley on the Bank Holiday Monday. We went down to Henley. It was weird being there without Mom & Dad and not calling in on the Swiss Farm Camp Site. We realised that it was the previous years bank holiday when we were down there and Dad and i were dismantling the wooden floor under the awning of the caravan. There have been many great memories made in that place.
We wandered around the town looking for somewhere nice to have lunch. After failing to get my Mom on the phone to ask her advice we settled on Pizza Express and then went for a walk down the river which was super chilled and super lovely. Ruth commented that that walk has always been a place where we have always spent our “imaginary money” in our heads. It’s always fun to do that and always easy when you see all the nice boats.
During all this we witnessed a bit of a boat crash. Some inexperienced leisure boaters got impatient leaving the one of the locks and bumped in to the people in front of them who just happened to be in one of those uber expensive speed boats. – you know those ones made of wood and not fibre glass. It was the boating equivalent of an Austin Metro rear-ending a Lamborghini.
We walked on and later found the two boats in question pulling up to the side. We offered to give my details in case they needed a witness statement at which they were very grateful. After this we moved on and came home to a nicer super chilled eve.
A lovely day out!
