It was a dull morning when I set off from Waterloo station along the South Bank, heading for Canary Wharf on the other side of the Thames. Eventually the weather improved and became sunny / cloudy and this time I managed to locate the pier where the short ferry embarks and crosses the Thames to Canary Wharf – you have to walk through the Hilton Hotel reception! Finally a bit more walking along the North Bank until my feet gave up at Wapping Station.
Disappointed with the pictures, I decided that I would artify the best ones. (artify – to apply artistic techniques – the Urban Dictionary)
I was going to walk from Waterloo Station along the north bank of the Thames, but when I saw the Shard in the distance I just had to visit this wonderful building zooming into the sky. A sunny day with the odd cloud made for some colourful pictures. However, sausage and mash, floating in a gravy pond, was not a good choice at the otherwise pleasant Moby Dick pub. Finally, a Banksy-like image on a wall.
The north bank of the Thames makes a pleasant change to the crowded and touristy south bank. There are several interesting looking pubs amongst the converted warehouses but at a Cafe Rouge we had a snack lunch which came with the saltiest French-fries you could imagine – lovely!
