This was a much better day than the previous Sunday — these are actual pictures taken on the walk, and look at those blue skies. A party of four led by Annie met at Woolwich Arsenal station to follow the Thames Path up to Greenwich. The first section took us through the oldest part of the Arsenal site to the river, then upstream alongside the former site of the Woolwich Dockyard, with traces of old ship construction docks.
There was then a slightly tedious section where we could not follow the river and had to find our way through a housing estate. We rejoined the river at the Thames Barrier, and stopped at the cafe for hot drinks. The next two miles followed an excellent riverside path up to North Greenwich and the O2/Millennium Dome, where we stopped for a sandwich.
The final stretch from the Dome into Greenwich was a bit messier, the path running alongside various building sites where factories had been demolished and, presumably, expensive flats will eventually emerge. We stopped at the Cutty Sark (a pub) for a drink before splitting up by the Cutty Sark (not exactly a boat anymore).
