This little floating community by the canal:
I had a meeting near Stratford in the morning which allowed me a slightly more interesting ride into work.
Unusually I took no pictures on the Woolwich Ferry - it finally offers no new inspiration for me, or at least the flipping great lorry blocking my view didn;t help.
Cycled on the Greenway - noticing the refurb work going on everywhere, and dirty great stadium as I reach Stratford.
Also a massive shopping centre going up - not sure what that has to do with sport, or even why its needed.
Then from Leyton, via Hackney Wick/ Whick (?) onto the canal - more refurb work.
Came off canal at Angel, and on to Mount Pleasant where for first time I bought lunch at one of the many food stalls I've seen there for many years now.
Black bean stew - and very nice:
Back to central London along the canal. Unfortunately stretches of it are closed off due to works to repair decades of neglect in time for the Olympics.
I saw the sign, and I saw the ducks.
