OK, so I lied a bit in the last post when I said adventuring was postponed until autumn. Last Sunday I thought I’d go for a late afternoon mini hike between Henley and Cholsey, hopping over the Thames at Wallingford.

Such a peaceful evening! Here’s a lane crossing the Ridgeway trail which I was following towards the end.


Just before I took this photo I had a baffling encounter with a cycling Frenchman. He asked me if I had seen the “Stone of History”. I must have looked confused because he repeated the question. I hadn’t and he pedalled off on his way. I wonder if he ever found it.
