Thames Path–Tilehurst to Henley-on-Thames

I mentioned in my 2012 goals that I wanted to do 12 walks.  I really enjoy walking as a way to relax, a social activity, a time to think and plot and plan.  When setting that goal, I had it in mind to try and walk the length of the Thames Path (180 miles).
A while back, on a sunny Saturday when spring was still promising, a friend and I set out to walk from Tilehurst to Henley.  It’s a regional but not remote section, passing quite close to the commuter town of Reading. Blessed with sunny weather, it was a great days walking. 
Henley’s a great town to finish in, upmarket and with plenty of cafes. With time to kill before the next train to London, we rewarded ourselves with both afternoon tea and a cheeky beer.  If you can’t enjoy a beer after 12.25 miles, when can you?

I've walked 35 of the 180 miles so far this year. Only another 145 miles to go
