Back Down South

Dad had suggested an afternoon tea somewhere (very cute of him to ask mum, "Do you think Katie might like...?") I did like. Very much. We had pots of tea and plates of sandwiches and fancy tarts at the Compleat Angler, looking at the river as it flowed past, although we weren't seated on the terrace as it began to rain. It really was a most enjoyable way to spend an afternoon.

The company is great and the view's not bad either.

Dinner with friends at Cousin Rachael's place was a lovely way to spend an evening.

Cousin Rachael and I went to see Henry V at The Globe. I will write more about this spectacular performance, but here are a few pictures of the venue. As we were groundlings (standing in the yard for $5) our pre-show drinks of Pimm's and cider cost more than our tickets. For some reason this amused me.

We ended up with a lovely walk from Marlow to Turville. The Chiltern Hills are absolutley gorgeous!

  1. Thanks for the lovely pics, Kate. Brings back memories of when I used to do the teas at the Compleat Angler! We used to scoff all of the leftover cakes and pastries in the kitchen after we brought them in. Your parents clean up so well! Don't think I've ever seen your dad in a tie except at your wedding.

    And Robin looks like such the proud papa. So glad everyone's doing well.
