Just Cruisin' the Thames

Recently we were treated, as part of my 30th birthday present, to a trip up the Thames on the Waverley - the last seagoing Paddle Steamer in the World. Other than losing the feeling in the tip of my nose and fingers, it was a marvellous day out with the other half and his adventure seeking folks. We spent most of the day outside in the elements with intermissions to the engine room every now and then to warm up in the gorgeously dry heat (feeling inspired, plans are in place to build our own sauna one day - another shed project maybe?).

But it was all worth it because from the moment we boarded, there was so much to look at, even more so as we approached central London, when the speed of looking this way and that vastly increased, to the extent that we all started feeling like whiplash was setting in. The city skyline views really came alive as the sun retreated and the many lights started to litter the river as we ventured on to our destination - Tower Bridge (which was raised especially for us, what a moment!). We would all highly recommend this for a day out, a real treat - thanks so much folks, a real gem of a day to remember!
