Walk Report

Putney to Westhumble, Saturday 2nd June 2012
7 walkers, 23.25 miles - leader Peter Buchwald
Putney was shrouded in steamy mizzle
The tranquil timber boat houses awakened
As hardy Thames boatmen prepared skiffs
For a dynamic day on the glassy river.

The chattering Beverley made our way
From its confluence with the Thames
Through open pastures of Richmond Park
And umbrageous Womble-filled alleys.

At last an afternoon sun glimmered out
Shining down through leafy treetops
In the viridescent Surrey woods and glades
As we made our way to a roborant pint.
