We finally found where the Zest run was taking place after going up a single track road and finding it was the wrong way although that wasn't what the sat-nav said!!
My daughter Jill and her friend Jenny were taking part in a 5K run which included a few obstacles.
We were lucky to be able to look after Harry while they did the run. He loved watching the ladies at the end of the run had to go through, in, on a bouncy thingy!!
When they finished their run and collected an excellent goodie bag and looked at a few stalls selling sports equipment we said goodbye to them and we went into Henley town to have some lunch and a walk round.
Up until then the weather had been good but it changed. We parked the car and walked to Cafe Rouge for lunch, while we were in there it really poured we could see people with umbrellas etc...going past quickly.
Henley is know for the Regatta which starts 3rd July http://www.hrr.co.uk/. There were a group of 11 ladies that wanted lunch but there wasn't enough room inside so they ate outside, luckily there was quite a good canopy. Although as rowers I am sure they are used to getting wet.I only heard one or two speak but they had American accents. I wonder if they had come over especially or whether they were studying at one of our Universities??

Lovely roses growing up the wall and also lovely windows
We came across this Bugatti in a pub car park so couldn't resist taking a few photographs. It had just poured with rain, so the seats etc.. were very wet!!
Also going over the bridge we came across, well you couldn't miss it with the noise a Steam Traction Engine:-
Our final stop of the day was visiting the cafe at the River and Rowing Museum. Outside were these excellent sculptures of Steve Redgrave and Matthew Pinsent, our GB Rowing heroes!!

Finally we made our way home, sometimes having to drive in the rain.It had been a good day all round and we had a lazy evening watching the highlights of the "Trooping the Colour" which took place in London during the morning to celebrate the Queens "Official" birthday.
My son, Sam, a "London Bobby" was on duty for it.
Hope you have all had a good weekend and that the weather was good where you were? Have a good week!! ;-))
