Flooding in Purley-on-Thames (update – 6th January 2013)

Jack and I went with Nana for a walk down to Mapledurham Lock this afternoon and I took some photos of the receding flood waters.  We think the water level must have dropped about 2-3 feet since the previous pictures I posted.

I strongly believe that the swans saw a child and thought we were a sure thing for bread!

The lady at the lock cafe must have thought we were insane, as JackJack has an ice lolly (lemonade flavour) – brrrrrr!
