Tea, Cake and a Walk along the Thames

I walked along the River Thames path last week with a friend stopping at the Plough Way Cafe, Surrey Docks for refreshments.

 We sat outside as it was so warm but the interior was very attractive with gold mosaic on the back wall, a lovely old style station clock and an eclectic mix of tables, chairs and light shades.
HMS Bulwark was moored up on the Thames at Greenwich after commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Jutland.
Manze's traditional pie and mash shop in Deptford.

View towards the city of London from the disused lock at Surrey Docks.
Foot tunnel entrance under the River Thames at Greenwich.
Managed about 8 miles in total so think I used up the calories from eating the cake....hopefully.

Dendritic Monoprint

A monoprint I did recently inspired by a lovely fragment of Mochaware I found on the Thames foreshore. The design technique on ceramics is called Mocha diffusion and this fragment is an example of the red seaweed design.
