Picture of the Day 6.03.14 - Walk Along the Docks

The weather recently in London has been mild and sunny for March.  It has certainly lifted my spirits and made me want to go outside.  I decide to take a walk at lunchtime with a friend and we ended up walking so far, I couldn't get back in time fora meeting.

We ended up near the East London Docks:

The new cable car ride across the docks to Greenwich, the O2 dome and pointy Canary Wharf.   I do want to try the cable car, but I'm terrified of heights.

This boat is the SS Robin, a  cargo-carrying old steamship that is being restored to serve as a museum.  I really like the building in the background.  It's called the Millennium Mills and is a derelict turn-of-the-century art-deco style building (a style I really, really love).

If developers ever show any interest in it, I hope they retain the look of this lovely old building.
