    We are now moored up in Hemingford Grey where we used to live, ready for the Regatta later today. It is the oldest village regatta in the country and only residents of Hemingford Grey and Hemingford Abbots can take part in the rowing, canoeing or punt races. There are 170 - 180 races planned for all ages from 7 to 70, so it should be a great day, especially as the weather is playing it's part as well.

We just missed the Queen coming into the castle on her way home from church, although we saw her in the telephone box later. We are now settled into our home in Hawkesbury Upton and Saffy the cat seems happy ...

It was incredibly uneven in every way possible, but it was all part of the charm. It was hard to imagine that it was lived in for so many years. It really does take you back, and make you realise how miniscule your time on earth is. Insignificant really...mostly.

    ... except that the coaches ride alongside on bikes, not outboards, because the river is so narrow). Sue convinced us that "The Orchard" where Rupert Brooke and others languished under fruit trees and composed poetry ( 'If I should die think only this of me..."), was the place to be on such a day, so we walked into town past river barges and out the other side of town. It is easy to forget how close farmland is there, and in fact we passed lots of cattle next to ...

    ... The situation is made worse by the fact that our cottage this week sits at the edge of the beach, in a large attractive sandy swimming cove. It’s the ultimate indignity knowing this wonderful temptation calls to him to swim and yet …………… he must resist for the greater goal of trying to restore his health sufficiently to reach Lands End.
