After I arrived in Putney I had my first coffee of the day at the church cafe I visited at the end of my last walk. Fully intending to get my receipt guess what? Yep I forgot it....ah well.
So I was off and immediately was in the middle of great excitement....there was a women's rowing race happening in just minutes......here was the scene as I strode (okay that's a strong word for how fast I move but it sounds good) along the banks. Putney is known for rowing so it was really special to be there for a race.
|The path was like this for about half of the way - loved it!|
|Harrods furniture depository - no longer used as that I am told but it is in use for something|
|And they're off! There were a lot of teams and it was fun to watch as I walked along the river bank.|
|Beautiful Hammersmith Bridge completed in 1887 - notice the crowd on the bridge cheering the rowers on|
|Still at it!|
|This would be a nice place to sit in the summer...|
|I stopped for a coffee and a "comfort break" here - and got my receipt!|
|One team is done! And yes, I had to duck under the boat!|
|Kew Railway bridge|
|And the end of my walk..and the beginning of the next one...|
|And back to this place...|
