It's been a glorious day (so far) and we were keen to take advantage of it.
We decided to go to Strand on the Green, which sits right on the north banks of the River Thames and is very beautiful (and very expensive).
We walked between two bridges, north side out and south side back. The river was reasonably high and running very quickly.
Local residents live with flood defences in place all year round.
We finished off with brunch at a riverside cafe ...
... and the good fortune to bump into the grandparents of The Boy Child's best friend. They treat The Boy Child like another grandson.
