A slightly belated post, because of being away from home. We were staying in a hotel close to Paddington Basin. On Monday evening, on our way back from dinner, we called in on Caxton, moored in the basin. It was great to meet Paul and Elaine again, and Sam and Bombo, as we had a good hour sitting out on the pontoon in the breeze, drinking a beer and chatting.
While we were there, the news broke of the Royal birth, and we heard the cheer go up from outside the Lindo Wing (which sounds to me more like the name of a foreign correspondent than part of a hospital) which is just the other side of the main hospital building alongside the basin.
