Narrative

We had glorious weather for our walk and great views across the river. We stopped at the cafe and had one there special coffees which was lovely.

The walk along the river was magical and the reflections on the river fabulous.

On walking through the residential area we mused at the prices of the houses which you could only describe as rather large. At times we wondered if we had taken the righ road but as there were no real turnings it was fairly straight forward.

We first tried to pass the golf course on the right only to find this not possible so had to track back and go the other way but once on the green it was easy to see the markers which had been placed to guide our way.
