On Saturday we took the plunge and headed out on the tidal Thames to travel from Limehouse Basin up to Teddington. We’d actually originally intended to go on Sunday, leaving us an extra day in London, but Bertha changed our minds. Nobody knew exactly how ferocious she was going to be or when and where she would hit so we decided to move our plans forward to avoid tangling with her. There’s not a lot to be said about the trip under Tower Bridge, past the Houses of Parliament and through all the other iconic London bridges, except perhaps WOW! It was exhilarating, exciting, just a tiny smidgen dangerous and altogether amounted to one of the best day’s boating possible. I’ll leave the photographs to tell the story.
Would we do it again? Hell yeah – it was brilliant!
