We are on vacation and have been for the past month. It ends on Friday when we return home.
Normally we only go away for about 2 weeks each year but because of all the surgery that Marilyn has had this year we decided to have an extra month in order to give her a chance to get back some of her strength.
It has made a real difference. When we left home she had difficulty walking more than a few hundred yards but this past week I estimate she must have walked about 10 miles.
We are staying in a lovely 4 bedroomed house near to the beautiful Burnham Beeches Nature Park.
When I say near we can actually walk there in around 5 minutes. Burnham Beeches is a 540 acre park with lovely walks, magnificent trees and ponds.
We have also visited the picturesque town of Marlow and walked part (a very small part of the Thames Path
We fell in love with Marlow. It is a fabulous town and we plan to go back for my birthday tomorrow (30th Aug)
Yesterday we went to Windsor. Another delightful but touristy town. We saw the castle and again walked along the Themes.
Overall it has been a fantastic month.
Those who know us may be wondering how we could afford a month in a big house with a cleaner coming once a week, a gardener once a week and set in an expensive area. I will let you in on a secret. It has not cost us anything! That is right the house was free of charge.
Because we got it through Christian House Sitters.

God bless you,
