Thames Walk

Back Home Up Next


Saturday, May 19.  Rowing and Thames Walk.

Another lovely Saturday morning, so we, despite a tiring week, couldn't let it pass without an excursion to more untried territory. We walked down to Putney High Street for coffee and toast for a late breakfast, and then headed to the river to check out the rowing clubs. I had noticed a regatta advertised for May 26, so thought we might catch some people training. Indeed we did. There were a lot of boats on the water. We followed the Thames upstream past the rowing clubs and along a beautiful leafy river bank path up to the Hammersmith Bridge. We crossed over there and had lunch at a pub by the river and next to some more rowing clubs. It was a very refreshing morning.
