The Road to Henley…

On Monday July 14th we left our self-catering lodging in Ross on Wye and headed East to Henley on Thames.

Our route was close to 100 miles and as you can see the roads were nice and wide compared to the country lanes we had been traveling on. road to Henly day11 011When we left the M roads as we got close to Henley on Thames we enjoyed driving through some picturesque towns.

This was our hotel for the night and if we knew then what we would soon discover we would have made other arrangement immediately. Live and learn.

This was a wonderful town to stroll through and the walkway along the River Thames was quite nice. More from Henley on Thames soon.

Today, Saturday October 4th I’m heading to the Seattle Center to attend a Tea Festival with our daughter Katie and some friends. I hope to have some fun things to share. We have had a most glorious introduction to October weather wise here in the Seattle area. I’m most thankful for the beauty that we are enjoying.

  1. Such beautiful, charming towns!! I would have loved that bit of sightseeing!
    Enjoy your tea time today…that sounds like a lovely way to spend an autumn Saturday!

  2. Beautiful shots once again Ellen! Picturesque town indeed! Wondering what the rest of the story is on that quaint looking hotel edged with Lavender – hmmm. Have a fun day. We have a nephew’s wedding today :).

  3. Picturesque and charming…and totally reminds me of our time touring the countryside around London. Sorry your accommodations were not what you hoped for! Enjoy your tea!

  4. So now we are all very curious to discover what it is you learned about the hotel . . . was there a boat festival on and noise all night long on the river? It all looks very charming and English.

  5. I vaguely remember a story about a less than satisfactory accomodation…perhaps you could slap a link back so we might learn the juicy details. Ha!
