Greenwich 1: On the Thames

Last May John and I went to the ferry docks in Southwark near the Millenium Bridge to catch a City Ferry to Greenwich.
The view from the docks of St Paul's and the busy workboats
of the Thames was fascinating.
Soon our ferry arrived
with its jolly crew and we were off!
The view past London Bridge and the new buildings popping up on Canary Wharf.
At last we arrived at the 17th century buildings of the Royal Naval Academy at Greenwich
to be greeted by a statue honouring the  famous Tudor sea captain, Sir Walter Raleigh. This must be the place!
