Back in January us Londoners had a bit of proper snow and it was lovely. Also that month, stories appeared on the Interwebs declaring that the Thames Path by the Lovell’s development was to be opened after being shut for years (that is how it felt at least).
These two exciting events coincided with a visit from my aunt and uncle the weekend after the snow, so what better thing to do in freezing January than go for a walk to the O2!
It was also another opportunity to crack out the new shiny camera so here are some photos…
My favourite local, The Pelton Arms
An amazing sight! One can walk beside the river!
I spotted these wooly bollard hats two days earlier and found out they were the work of the Guerilla Knitters, Greenwich branch. Part of this walk turned into ‘spot the knitting’ which was quite enjoyable.
After the first knitting spots we came to Enderby’s Wharf which is supposed to be turning into a cruise liner terminal
Yes, I do cruelly force family members to pose for embarrassing photos
The east side of the Isle of Dogs is in the background
Morden Wharf with its awesome lettering
Spotted this great bit of work, I would imagine the Greenwich Industrial History Society were involved
After walking the long way round we finally reached the O2 and went to Starbucks for a much needed hot drink!
We then went on the cable car but it was raining by that time and my photos are completely awful. It was fun though! Hooray for Boris’s dangleway!
