For my boating-interested chums, here's some more pics of our walk to the river the other evening.
This is close to the Olympic site along the river. The red hoop bridge is a really striking bit of architecture. Has already begun to attract graffiti around the base.
And here's a shot of earlier in our canal walk, of a rather imposing boat moored closer to Victoria Park. What a prow! It's a good word as it sounds 'proud'.
