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.
