River Thames Cruise

Monday 29th June 2009

Today Gina & I took advantage of a lovely summer’s day, and we went for a cruise along the River Thames. We set off from the pier next to the Tower of London, sailing under Tower Bridge as far down as Greenwich, and then back again towards Westminster, home of “Big Ben” and the Houses of Parliament. On the way we passed many interesting places and sites, such as HMS Belfast and the “London Eye”. In the evening, we ate “al fresco” at an Italian restaurant in nearby St. Katherine’s dock. You can view a short movie of the trip on our Davis family podcast – enjoy !!!

Here you can see the dome of St. Paul’s Catherdral, through a gap on the embankment.
