PS Waverley - River Thames 13 October

Final set of pictures taken on the Thames of PS Waverley, and the final time I'll see her this year . . .

At the start of the Day PS Waverley and her attending tug Revenge at wait for sailing time at Tower Pier. 

The view from the bridge heading through the Thames Barrier.

Shipping outbound from Tilbury. 

The Thames sailing Barge 'Cambria'

PS Waverley's engine room,  a huge draw for all ages!

Great cruising weather, where was the sun for the rest of the 2012 sailing season!  

At Gravesend Pier 

Departing Gravesend on an afternoon cruise up the Thames . . . 

. . . . and thanks to a good train service we see her in the Pool of London assisted by Revenge. 

Here's to 2013 . . . . and many more years of paddling!
