Temple Island

The first time I drove past Temple Island, several years ago on the way to Henley-on-Thames, it was early morning and so foggy I could barely see the banks of the river. The thick bank of fog ended abrupty at the island, a quite dramatic sight.

This time, headed towwards Henley, the island and its ornamental folly (originally designed as a fishing lodge) could be clearly seen. This is one of the most perfect places on the Thames, with fine views all around, sheep grazing and a perfect place for a picnic.
