West India

Moored outside the Hilton Hotel
Off at 05:45 this morning and down Limehouse Cut - around the Bow Back Rivers ('beating the bounds of the parish'  for St Pancras Cruising Club) and back out onto the Thames and in through West India to our moorings outside the Hilton Hotel.

We passed scrutineering this afternoon so we are 'green to go' now.  Just need to decorate the boat tomorrow and a briefing this evening in the Hilton Hotel (with free food!).
