Ooh I hope they do a bridge, that'd be well handy. Canary Wharf is an absolute bugger to get to.Have your say on proposals for a new river crossing between Rotherhithe and Canary Wharf - Transport for London - Citizen Space

That deserves a thread of its own!Well my travels on the Thames (in my blow up boat) continue.
I have got my act a lot more ship shape.
All polarised sunnies, lanyard with BCU membership and a boyancy (sp)? aid. I look the part rather than piratical.
I have a few days off so was planning a jaunt on my own. Crew are great mind, however I look forward to not managing anyone other than myself.
Looking at the map this morning I thought "think big"!
So the plan is hump all my stuff Iron Man style via tube and coach to Oxford then head to London in the boat.
I will string up my camping hammock then wander the riverside meadows before knocking on those Country farm house doors I read about in The Famous Five for tomatoes and fresh goats.
I think I'm fully prepared. I'm excited in a way I don't usually feel before a holiday. No airport stress to worry about or girlfriends turning up a day late.
I aim to be back by Friday afternoon. We'll see...
