A good route for one with a good eye . . .

Wow, these photos totally shattered the romantic ideas I conjured up surrounding the Thames. It gets a bit industrial around there doesn't it?

At least you get to walk near water. There's a plus.

You got some interesting shots their Lettie.

We 'sailed' up the Thames last summer but didn't see any of that. Maybe we weren't looking!

Oh I love industrial bits of The Thames myself...

Cool pics :O)

Dennis says thank you for all the pictures to look at--the dangerous structure no mooring was funny. Dennis looks forward to seeing you soon.

That first shot is interesting: appears to be two hooded monks.
Doesn't look to be any places to swim in the area. Where does one go to swim?
Great photos to peruse, thanks.

If you are going to see Dennis, please give Ched and Edward a chintickle from me, I'd do it myself but I'm too busy right now... plus I don't know where they live.

Steve said...

Ha! I thought the sign said "No Mooning"!

Wow, lovin' the half-drowned shopping cart and the three lopsided mooring posts...suhweet, hope you're having fun with Dennis, Ched, and Eddie!
