An Autumn Walk Along the Thames


Last week we went for a walk along the Thames to make the most of the mild weather and the gorgeous autumn colours. It was quite a dark, cloudy afternoon, but the river was so peaceful! And the trees so beautiful!

We started with a return visit to Guards Club Island (a tiny island in the Thames which I explored back in sunny September). It's amazing the difference a few weeks can make to the look of a place...

 
 

Then we headed to Boulter's Lock but instead of visiting the Lock itself and Ray Mill Island, we walked up river...

 

 Autumn trees + water = magic!


We passed lots of people out walking their dogs along the riverside, and saw lots of ducks who optimistically swam towards us in the hopes that we came bearing food (sorry, ducks!).

 

We also saw a couple of swans: bright dots of white in the autumn gloom.


All in all, an A+ way to spend the afternoon!
