All that effort and the day finally arrived when we left Limehouse Basin and went up the River Lee to embark on our trip around the Olympic Park. Ellie had arrived the night before and Jamie met us at the Three Mills mooring where all the boats were getting together.
At the briefing we were pleased to hear that we were to be allowed through City Lock to do the Bow Back River section. We’d been warned by email that this section might be out of bounds due to the heavy rain from the day before.
We took the boat back to Limehouse, moored up and headed out for the afternoon. Jamie had never been on the Emirates airline cable car and we certainly didn’t mind doing that again.
We headed to Borough Market….
…and went for a great burger in a posh burger joint the name of which escapes me.
All in all a brilliant day – even though the supposed main event was a bit underwhelming.
