Riverboat Trip on the Thames
River trip today. Unfortunately the boat berthed much further away than we had thought it would on the floating platform, resulting in a very long walk to the boat, so Romy had to transport several people in turn in a wheelchair, dashing back and forth when we boarded and when we arrived back. We definitely need another folding wheelchair and to employ a couple of brawny wheelchair pushers for these outings. Anyway, the weather was good and the boat was very large. We were greeted with Buck's Fizz and an excellent luncheon was served. There was a traditional jazz band on the boat which added to the jolly atmosphere. Romy and I spent some time on deck enjoying the riverbank views. A most successful outing.
