TODAY WE continue with our occasional series The Thames today.
The Thames forms the southern boundary of four East London boroughs: Tower Hamlets, Newham, Barking & Dagenham and Havering. In one way it is a barrier, sealing off one direction of exit. In other ways, it is a magnificent natural resource, which most of us take it for granted.
Today’s photo was taken on 29th December 2021 at Clippers Quay on the Isle of Dogs. The area has been supplied with this private mooring area, which was probably a great selling pitch, but either all the residents are out or no one has a boat to park. The main users of the area are our feathered friends. In the foreground two ducks are having a snooze. You know what it’s like between Christmas and the New Year. We’ve all been there.
●If you have a photo of the Thames which you would like to share with our readers and viewers, please send it to us on firstname.lastname@example.org, stating when and where it was taken and whether you would like a photo credit.
