Marlow, England. Sunday 05-May-2103
No team photo today - just the three of us: me, Mary and John.
Marlow is clearly a lovely little town but we had no time to take in the atmosphere. Sunday morning was a cereal-based, slow-release carb breakfast and an early-ish start for the second day - off at 9:15.

Sundial in Marlow
We soon left the town and were into the countryside - classic Thames with swans.
Open country past Culham Court with views and charity runners and wild flowers.
Comfort break at Henley
After 9.5 miles we reached Henley and a chance for Mary to adjust her socks. Turns out her right little toe was blistered and she limped on for another 2.5 miles to the lunch stop at The Baskerville at Lower Shiplake.
After lunch we decided, reluctantly, to call it a day and caught the train home. Even so it was a good walk and a good start point for the next leg.
