On a lovely, sunny day, and not for the first time, a 7 mile walk along the River Wey starting at Ripley.
Another walk from Ripley to the River Wey Navigation and around the Ripley lake, followed by a light lunch in the very pleasant Nest Cafe in the village.
There aren’t many lakes around here, but I saw one on the map near Ripley. You can walk all the way round but I just went half-way round before diverting to a path through fields and on to the River Wey Navigation. A short walk to the Seven Stars pub for a glass of wine and a bacon & Brie sandwich. An interesting sandwich – not sure if the salad (lettuce, rocket, cucumber, apple, pepper, tomato, celery) was sufficiently healthy to overcome the unhealthiness of the bacon & Brie!
