Boat Blog: View from the cable car…

Posted by indigodream on 29 January, 2014

It was still very early when we arrived at the Royal Dock – early enough for Richard to go off to work and for me to take a “360 degree” trip on the Emirates Air LineΒ  to take some photographs. It was the most beautiful morning – a proper photographer would say it was too bright but I appreciate a bit of winter sunshine.

Here are some of my photos from the trip – sadly some have been marred by the sun reflecting from the glass walls of the “pod” but I got enough photos to make the trip worthwhile πŸ™‚

Enterprising businesses can now advertise their services on their rooftops - the river ferry at the far end does the same :-)

Now that's a mooring with good connections to local transport :-)
