Paddling to Westminster on a Thursday Night – 10 Reasons Why It’s A Good Idea

1. Learning about birds (Hey, what’s that bird? A cormorant. Ah, right. And that one over there? Hmm, I’m going to go with ‘a bird’.)
2. Great company*
3. Houses of Parliament glowing pinkish-gold in the setting sun
4. Wildlife at it’s best – ringside seats to a cormorant tussling with an eel for supper. 1 – 0 to the eel.
5. Big Ben’s bells tolling out the hour
6. Catching the tide back from Westminster on a perfectly still evening, the water a mirror under the dusk sky
7. Slicing through the white and honey-coloured Chelsea Bridge reflections, like liquid gold
8. Racing ferries and attempting to catch wake waves in a very un-Harry-like style
9. The well deserved drink(s) in the pub, post paddle*
10. Paddling, just to paddle

* There is no preferential order to this list
