Robyn's campaign to cheer me up; Boulters Lock.

Last week was about the worst week ever(I know, I know - there will be worse) , so at the weekend Robyn started her campaign to cheer me up.

On Saturday afternoon she dragged me out and we went to the River Thames at Maidenhead.

I was pretty grumpy, even with a view like this;

It's the riverside path from Boulters Lock in Maidenhead on the way to Cookham. It's about as English a scene as you could find. There are weeping willows with their branches sweeping the surface of the river. There are broad leafed trees - ancient and solid. There are swans and geese, there are ducks.

There are gentle ripples on the river from a light breeze. It's sunny;

There are boats cruising and this gloriously restored working longboat dappled by the sun;

And then we walked back to the island at Boulters Lock where we had an ice cream as the day ended;  

Almost worked.
