Messing about on the river

A calmer form of transport

Fortunately, I hardly used the Tube this Bank Holiday weekend. Me and
Neil took the opportunity of the one day of sunshine to see some rabid dogs:

Rabies Prevention

Fortunately Teddington Lock doesn't have many rabid dogs, and this fluffy little creature on the right spent more time sniffing the ground than snarling and foaming at the mouth.

Turk Launches from Richmond put on a leisurely river boat "cruise" from Richmond to Hampton Court. The Huckleberry Finn style paddle steamer left the very un deep South pier near The Slug & Lettuce and we had to time to take in the river "traffic"

Good to see that our riverboat had puntastic names for the loos:

Fimb you're welcome to add to your toilet blog!

Neil's taken some cool black and white pictures if you want to see more of the trip, and it was certainly good to have some transport in London without a scrum.
