Thames Path and Sunday Roast

A short walk from the Hammersmith Station, a world away from noisy buses, round-abouts and crowded Tubes is the Thames River Path, anchored by the stately green Hammersmith Bridge. In anticipation of 'sunny' Spring days we have spent the last few Sundays exploring different pubs along the river. On nicer days the wide river path fills with families, runners, and bike riders but yesterday it was quiet ... even the longboats moored along the banks were buttoned-up.

This Sunday we shared 'Roast' at the Old Ship with Ray, Maria, Ken, and Kelly ... all part of our EY family in London! 

It was a windy day but perfect for the sailors making manoeuvres in preparation for the race to begin.

We saw quite a few boats tip over but the sailors were experienced and knew how to recover quickly.

Still on our list of Pubs to try are the Blue Anchor and The Dove, where it's claimed that "Rule Britannia" was penned in an upstairs room.

Love the Sunday roast project and the hunt to find fun pubs!

I hope you are taking some sailing tips for the future!
