Hi Chris

Firstly, thanks for organising the trip. We are all busting to go but my 12 year old son has been off school with a nasty cough so i think we will have to postpone..

The thames is at the top of my list at the moment, and I know that I would prefer to do it in company. Perhaps you can 'offer your services' again soon?

Have a great day out anyway.

Doug and family

Still planning to hover around on the river by Putney slip at 10.30am Sat.

However, due to things I have to do Sat afternoon, will onlybe able to accompany as far as tower bridge.

Nice piccies - looks like you had a good day. But did someone pick up a plastic bag on their prop? And is the last one the War Memorial Steps on Victoria embankment?

It was a 1 ton builders bag and needed to be cut off with a knife.

I was lucky, and in fact have never fouled the prop on the Thames..touch wood
