Our introduction to the famous Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, was the famous Henley Bridge so often seen in the annual Royal Regatta races, an important part of the London Season.
At our visit in May, we were a little early for the races July 4-8 this year, but they were already preparing.
Okay, I have to admit, we were pretending to be at the regatta, drinking Pimm's at the Angel on a warm sunny day.
Guess why I loved this vessel.
The swan, looking for a handout.
Church of St. Mary has a 16th Century tower.
The Red Lion...do you ever wonder how many of these exist in Britain. Or the White Horse Inn....
Today we were content with luncheon and swans, but perhaps someday we'll be there to watch the competition.
