Sunday saw the clan take to the water as we were off on a canal trip to celebrate the 30th birthday of Big T’s nephew.
We met at Little Venice, picnics in hand and set off on Lady A, a small canal boat we’d hired for a three hour tour, all organised by Big T’s niece.
The weather was a little brisk but with Prosecco flowing, we warmed up nicely and birthday celebrations were soon going strong as we slowly cruised along the canal through Regent’s Park and on to the mayhem of Camden at the weekend.
We went through long tunnels where bikes can’t go and had buskers singing Happy Birthday from the path. We went through Camden Lock where volunteers cheered and sang, it was a fantastic atmosphere.
For me it was interesting as I’ve cycled the path many times but being at water level gave a very different view. We cruised to my office and then turned around to head back to Little Venice.
Three hours later, we were back on dry land. A great way to spend an afternoon and a fantastic way to celebrate a birthday!
