A Saturday afternoon stroll around a regenerated part of London's old dockyards, taking in the East India Dock, Trinity Buoy Wharf and Container City.
We caught a DLR train from Bank tube to East India station and followed the graffiti style directions to Trinity Buoy Wharf.
New Docklands residential developments - all a far cry from when I first visited in the 80s.
East India dock basin, now a thriving wild life
Looking across to the Greenwich Peninsula, with the iconic Millennium Dome dominating the scene.
It was much ridiculed at the time, but I went to the original Dome show expecting to be totally underwhelmed and ended up rather enjoying it. The BA ride was fantastic!

Looking towards Canary Wharf.
