Hey there is a whale in the River Thames outside the Houses of Parliament!!!

I therefore have decided not to go out on the Thames for a blast but actually float a whale AND M.P. watching company instead!!!


Will try to get some pictures for you all with London tourist attractions in the background.

Where did all you lot get to?! I ewas down in yarmoutha bout 12:20 but no sign of anyone anywhere, no ribs, nothing! so I went mountain biking instead.

I guess you changed your destination or were running late?

Hope you all had a good day, looked real nice out there.

Tim

Sorry to missed you Tim.

We didnt get there until about half one in the end due to a breakdown (well we had three breakdowns in the end but this was a result of the first one). Apart from that a very enjoyable day out was had by all. Jimbo's Ausie/Kiwi friend kept us entertained with comments like "if I can't have children Im blaming you" - he had never been in a RIB before

I think all three of the student boats (Cormorant, UPSC 1, and Stevie) ran out of petrol at some point today - shows just how poor us poor and lowly students are!

Thanks very much to CJL as well for letting us all have a go in your RIB! I'm sure lots of photos will be posted in due course. I have a fair bit of video (took my video camera along) which I will put up shortly.

And of course thankyou to the man at the fuel pontoon in Yarmouth; your quick and friendly service is such a credit to the harbour (check that sentance for sarcasm)
