Hammersmith – 17 January 2010
In contrast to yesterday, today was sunny, and even warmer, reaching a balmy 10deg.
A circular walk from Hammersmith, mostly along the Thames, was very enjoyable, until the camera battery ran out. So after admiring the recently cleaned church in Hammersmith, and the bridge, I was unable to record all the cox eights, out in the early morning, practicing. The river is lined with rowing clubs.
The walk went from Hammersmith to Barnes and back via Fulham Palace. This Tudor palace is now open to the public, a very quiet and tranquil place with a largely neglected garden, beside the Thames.
