Afloat Again

Set off late as usual (in as much as there was ever a plan to set off early), stopped at Wright's Lane Bridge near Bugbrooke. I managed to forget to buy coal so we gathered twigs from the hedge for firewood. No axe or saw, so we couldn't use anything I couldn't break by hand. I expected the twigs to burn quickly without giving much heat but it worked surprisingly well.

Moored at Wright's Lane Bridge No 45
Total distance is 2 miles, 2½ furlongs and 0 locks.

Last Pylon

The last pylon for the Emirates Air Line is now being assembled.

When it is complete the cables can be strung. Some of the cable cars are already visible in the North Greenwich terminus.
