Easter Bank Holiday: Gorgeous Goring on Thames
On Sunday morning we travelled the 8 miles back down to Goring,
which was as gorgeous as ever. I have to admit I love the place.
Stunning location, beautiful walks and the best food ever at the Pierreponts Cafe.
So naturally that was our first stop once we'd moored up: a good lunch
before our 8 miles walk through the bluebells in Wroxhills Wood, past The White Lion
pub in Crays Pond and back to the boat. Then it was a quick drink with
some friends on their boat before dinner and bed. Breakfast on Monday
was at the Pierreponts Cafe - of course - and as it was a Bank Holiday I
was very decadent: french toast with bananas, bacon and maple syrup.
All in all, it was the most perfect weekend: glorious sunshine, great
food, beautiful countryside, amazing walks and not a traffic jam or
airline security queue in sight.
