No, you needn’t get excited, we didn’t do the tidal stretch out from Limehouse basin. I wouldn’t want to today with the high wind whipping up the waves. We took the tube and DLR to Limehouse, wandered about a bit then, by chance, a dutch barge was going out onto the tideway so we watched it through the lock. Then along to the famous pub ‘The Grapes’ for a drink. They have a deck overlooking the river. Whilst we were there an assortment of boats came past. Here are a tug pulling some barges and some rowers.
A very pleasant walk then along the Thames Path to Tower Bridge. Tesco express provided a picnic lunch which was taken in a lovely secluded garden overlooking the Tower of London.
