Limehouse and Tower Bridge

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.
