Monday morning musing

On the days when it is not pouring with rain, I walk along the Thames from London Bridge to the Tower of London on my way to work. I enjoy the walk along the river, particularly since it is one of those areas in London that is surprisingly quiet even when the rest of the city is bustling.

It also means I get to see some interesting sights: Tower Bridge being raised to allow a tall ship or a steamboat underneath; a luxury cruise liner incongruously moored alongside HMS Belfast; Rainbow Warrior moored outside the Tower of London.

I think my favourite might be the vision that greeted me this morning; a polar bear on a ice floe being towed upriver.

Unfortunately it was too sunny for me to get a photo and I haven’t seen any mention on the news yet but I’ll keep looking.

Edited: The BBC has a picture.
