Great night to be on the Thames.

I tied up at Putney Pier for dinner and eventually went back to my Fulham mooring at 3.00am.

River was like glass...not a ripple.

Its very well lit up from Tower Bridge down to about Wandsworth Bridge.

Once past Putney gets a bit dark.

Things to really look out for are the big unlit ships's mooring buoys and the floating platforms which collect the rubbish.

It's a great experience to be out there at night.
