Blowing the Cobwebs Away

After the Christmas festivities it is a pleasure to
go for a walk by the River Thames and to "blow the
cobwebs away"

The first two images were taken on a very cold day at Henley.

By contrast the other photos were taken the following day
a few miles away at Hambleden in the sunshine. The weather
felt so mild that when we stopped for a mulled wine at the
Stag and Huntsman, we sat outside in the sunshine, along 
with all the dog walkers and children, and very jolly it was too!
The speck  hovering above the hills in the photos below is a red kite!
