Luke and Will invited me along to be cameraperson and keep an eye on their pursuit of the perfect line on the Forset trails. As ever, a short video ensued: https://vimeo.com/106257350

With Tim out of plaster, he kindly chauffeured us to our chosen launch site at Kerne Bridge; a place heaving with excited hire canoe hordes. While Tim warmed up his artistic good arm, we meandered downstream.
Tim scooped us up ahead of the oncoming monsoon, with perfect timing. Phew: we've done the river in 2014. Tim had some nice sketches safely recorded, so all in all, a very successful outing. Thanks guys!

We visited Hidcote Gardens which were in the final flush of summer colour. Created over thirty years from an unpromising patch of farmland, they are a testament to one man's plant collecting trips and vision to see the flaura collected combined into a stunning 20th Century garden. 'Floating' parades of flowers set off against the house or the many garden 'rooms' walled by yew hedges, looked fantastic. On the way home we passed through honey coloured cotswold stone villages and called at Chipping Campden.
