Sunday 21st June 1936

The forth day of an oppressive heat wave. The forth night of flickering lightening flashes.

Went with Anne, to Cookham. Over the hills and along the tripper-infested riverside to Marlow. Took a skiff out for a couple of hours; fairly cool on the river. Back at Cookham in the evening with an hour to spare, so called at a pub. Lord, I was thirsty! Anne had three glasses of grapefruit, too!

Later, rain and lightening. (Sitting on a hill top, whilst I spread the map out. Sunset and a bit cooler. We discussed our favourite jazz tunes. We heard people singing – a hymn. There was a chapel further along the path.)
