Several weeks ago I decided that I was going to go to London today to visit an exhibition [chrisbeetles.com]of photographs by the 62 Magnum photographers. With the Met Office promising good weather (at last!) I decided to make full use of the day and do some sightseeing too. My friend Ina suggested a walk around Docklands so after visiting the gallery (I can highly recommend the exhibition if you can get there before it closes on the 19th May) I headed for the Docklands Light Railway and began my walk. I covered quite a distance, walking from Limehouse on the north coast of the Thames round to Millwall Dock, through to the city farm in Mudchute Park and from there down to Greenwich on the south of the river ?? all of this in glorious sunshine and with perfect fluffy blue and white skies overhead. To finish the day I took a river bus back to Embankment. I??ve never been on one of these before and I can??t understand why it??s taken me so long as it??s a fantastic way to see all the riverside landmarks. A perfect way to end a wonderful day.
