Boathouse Sky

Blueberry Muffins










Thames Path at Wallingford



Monday my wife & I took a walk into Wallingford and took a footpath to the Thames at Winterbrook that ran beside Bradfields Brook





It came out by the Assistant Lock keepers Cottage which was built in 1913



Always think it's a odd place and the nearest lock is Benson a few miles away but there was a lock nearby called Charlmore lock 
back in the Mid 1800's





a little further along you come across this huge boathouse




with balconies running around the outside




It was built for Oxford University Boat Club




There is a swing bridge to let  out the motor boat that follows the rowers
The gates to the boathouse motorboats. Note the initials on the gate

Nearby a few geese were swimming around


After our visit to Wallingford we walked back along the path the way we came leaving the boathouse behind

The Macaw









Ardington


Few weeks ago I was on a photography course in the village of Ardington, for the last 15 mins we went out for some practical work and I wandered down one end of the village I had not seen coming across the village War Memorial




Got to admit I visited the church but did not venture around this end of the road




The ware memorial with the names of the fallen from World War One





The seat and memorial



The Seat is a memorial to Lord Wantage who live in the village and was love by all



The inscription to Lord Wantage on the seat. He is buried in the churchyard

Flowerpots







Ivans Sunflower


Last year a guy I worked with who we all knew as Ivan (His real name was William) passed away after a log fight with an illness he had. At his funeral we were all encouraged to take some Sunflower Seeds and plant them in his Memory. I took a few packets and out of the first packet a couple survived to grow into what you see. Now every time I see a sunflower I will remember Ivan 
RIP Ivan
