I had a bit of spare time this lunchtime, so I paid a visit to Paddington Basin. By chance, just as I walked along the water's edge, they were doing the weekly test of the roll-up bridge. I didn't have my camera with me, so these are just phone photos.
There were quite a few people around watching -- including a couple I recognised: Les and Jaq from Valerie. Having introduced myself, I was invited back to the boat for a cup of tea. We spent a very enjoyable hour chatting before I had to head back to work. It was a pleasure to meet Les and Jaq, and I hope we'll bump into them again some time.
