Day 8 - Burghfield to Reading (!).
Refreshed after our brief stop, we left with fresh supplies of clothing (most important), no tent, no sleeping bags, and no other camping gear to weigh us down!.
By far the best way to get into central Reading on foot is to follow the canal path along the Kennet and Avon canal. We picked it up at the cunning man pub (after a brief stop for refreshment), and continued on into town.
The path goes on past the point when the canal meets the Oracle shopping centre, passing some pretty houses with gardens that go right down to the canal edge.
Todays interesting creature was a stripey caterpillar!
Tomorrow, we make for Henley by boat once more on the Thames.
