No kittens or puppies were rowing at Henley, so Tim Koch had to settle for pictures of humans doing endearing things.

It will take a few days before I find the time and energy to form the 1,000 pictures that I took at Henley into posts that meet HTBS standards. In order to placate those who are impatient for these, here are some images that may make them feel warm and fuzzy.

Thanks from a grateful crew.
