Henley Days – Bird Waitrose

It is another beautiful day in this English town. Spring is in the air and the birds are holding lots of celebratory parties it would seem. I imagine here that they are getting the party catering sorted. The river is sort of like a bird Waitrose in my head.

Henley On Thames is one of those rare places that has just a little sprinkle of magic about it. It is the sort of place where childhood dreams of talking animals and fairy woodlands might just (if you wiggle your nose and flutter your eyelashes) come true. There is more than a hint of fine English eccentricity woven deep into the fabric of the place. Don’t even get me started on the bliss of days spent drifting along the Thames in a little wooden boat, laden with a delicious feast of storybook proportions and a bottle (or two) of icy pink fizz.

In this series, I hope to show you a little slice of life in this gorgeous English town. (For more images in this series then why pop over to my Henley Days page)

For more of my work then why not have a gander at my Etsy shop?

  1. What a fantastic atmosphere this picture has! Our family dream is to travel to England once, rent a boat and just stroll down on lovely channels among idillic little places 🙂 Do you think we should include Henley on our imaginery route? 🙂

      1. Haha 🙂 Thank you very much, looking forward to the cake related item 😀 However, it is not going to happen soon, we would like to wait until the kids get a bit older and learn how to swim… just to be on the safe side 🙂 A few years, maybe…
