Totally unplanned trip on the Thames in London yesterday. I was going to do something else but it was such a beautiful day and the prospect of sitting on a boat in the sun on the Thames was too good to miss. So this is almost a wordless post!!

4 Thoughts on “Thames River Trip”

  • Lovely to see some of the area where I used to live. I've not been back in years, we lived in Rotherhithe, Surrey Docks before they changed it to the yuppy name Surrey Quays.
    I loved to go to Greenwich market and around the Cutty Sark….
    Good memories thank you 🙂

  • I might be biased, but London is a wonderful city. Thank you for this lovely photo-blog. I love the Antony Gormley and I recommend that everyone should at some point in their lives spend a quiet five minutes at the Battle of Britain Memorial near Westminster Bridge.
