Wapping Police Museum

Find out all about this event on http://www.whatsinwapping.com Today I arrived in Wapping after a mere 30 minute journey from Leyton. Crazy cos yesterday the roads were chokka. I explored in the freezing cold and damp, ending up in the friendliness of “The White Swan and Cuckoo”, 97 Wapping Lane. What a nice place. Christine was on duty and what a mine of information. Before my dinner arrived I had a cuppa for 50p. 50p? Wapping? And a slice of old fashioned proper bread from the Bakery up the road spread with real butter. Loved it all. On my full belly I was met by Rob at the Maritime Police Museum and boy he was generous with his knowledge and time. Well-recommended. he opened the back door and all I saw were lights on the Thames and loveliness and river police touching base.

Left and took the 100 bus to the Gauguin exhibition. Not all that, especially as I’d seen the BBC Gauguin programmes about 3 weeks ago. Learnt and saw all I needed from tv.

Hermitage Community Moorings coffee morning tomorrow. Excitement……
