Hey look at this baby then, isn't she beautiful. Wow, wow, flippin wow. I was grinning from ear to ear when I found it. Carol dropped me off at Farnham Station and I was able to get a cheap off peak return ticket. It was fiftyfive minutes to Waterloo Station. When I got there I found someone giving out free ice lollies to everyone, with compliments of Virgin. Then on to the Jubilee Line and I was at Canary Wharf in no time. There were lots of Olympic Meeters and Greeters about dressed in their pink and purple uniforms, so I asked for directions. A nice young lady gave me a complimentary map which will come in very usefull for future visits.
The place was awash with boats of all sizes, some of them amazingly massive. It must have taken a lot of skill to squeeze them into such small spaces. My first sighting of the ILONA yacht.
I am so pleased I went to see it. Another night with Carol tonight, tomorrow I'm off to Portsmouth. Toodle pip.
