The big fat Southbank adventure – Bank Holiday Monday

Bank Holiday Monday was a beautiful day and boy (buoy?) did we make the most of it!

The adventure was to travel from Putney to Greenwich. We packed four power boats – the Koes even squeezed Moppet in their rib – and started out towards Central London.

There was some discussion about the speed limits on the river…. there was more discussion about the speed limits on the water, with the PLA…and then again with the Police. Who knew what a hot topic it would be? I think the policeman took a fancy to Sara as he asked for her name and address.

It was fantastic to motor past all the London sights and see them from a different angle.

The swell under the bridges also added to the excitement.

Lunch was at The Trafalgar in Greenwich; we had the best table under the sun.

The motor back was lovely, the breeze on the water was a relief. We all helped haul the boats off the water and declared we’d had a smashing time.

Swallows and Amazons!
