For the last 10 years or more we have been going on a boat trip.
In September 2002 we went upstream from Chertsey to Windsor and back,
stopping for a meal on the way.
In June 2003, on a Saturday when the tides were suitable, we went from
Teddington to Greenwich and back.
In August 2004 we repeated the trip through London. Nine of us squeezed
into the boat, and on a particularly strong tide we reached Dagenham
before turning round.
Here is a view of the Houses of Parliament.
2005 took us to the Old Swan at Thames Ditton in
Amberel and later on to the Swan at Pangbourne in Dulcinea. 2006 was a bit
busy, and all we could manage was a short trip to Bell's of Ouzeley.
