New Year’s Day – 1st January 2013
In recent years, we’ve tried to get down to Bournemouth on New Year’s Day to blow the cobwebs away at the beginning of the year.
This year, where we’ve all been somewhat under-the-weather, we decided to go over to see the flooding at Henley, rather than venturing too far from home.
The weather was cold and sunny as we parked in the car park near the river and walked down to investigate how high the Thames was.
Given the chilly morning, we decided to head to the Chocolate Theatre Café for a drink.
We enjoyed hot chocolates and the chance to warm up, before heading home.
In the evening, we went over for tea to Mum’s house, having originally intended to go on Boxing Day.
We had a good day and it was a relatively gentle start to the New Year.
