Snap Photo Assault: The Dawgs to the Greenwich Peninsula

The morning rains were monsoon-quality. I was impressed. But what, you may ask, compelled His Royal Orangeness Karl Willem, PA/PR Gromit, and The Nashman to leave the comforts of our Hampshire digs out into the big wet world? Well, we had a date with The Rosamunde and The Carnetnoir to look at some dead people and who would say no to that?

This was a weird sunday to be in London because there were TWO football matches. One was regular "the beautiful game" football with Chelsea hosting Liverpool and the other American, yes, American football. The New Orleans Saints were playing the San Diego Chargers at the Wembley, yes Wembley Arena. Anyways, this simply meant that the underground and trains would be packed! As in in packed!

Fortunately, HRO Karl Willem and PA/PR Gromit have other means of transport...(cue Batman music)....


A boat on the River Thames! No, not a rowing boat...but a proper clipper.

Inside the HROS Orange Typhoon, the dawgs wave to Gordo...

A sail past the HMS Belfast...

Hmmm, I think our missiles are within range...

Christo's new art installation - Cover up the wires of Tower Bridge.

We are so annoyed that we can't go under the central section of tower bridge...booo.

What up with da powlice.....Now that we have left the heavily regulated central london area....it's..

...all thrusters go go go.....(remember to do the Shaider wave before you push the red button marked "thrusters". Duh.)

Canary Wharf, another ground zero for this year's recession. Guess who lost 1/3 of his net worth this week...

Greenwich and the Royal Naval Academy. Just passing through...

PA/PR Gromit points to where we are going - The 02 arena which used to be the Millenium Dome and a white elephant for a couple of years before it was converted to the best Concert Arena in the world...(or so says Led Zep, Prince, etc...)

Right...can we go closer please...

Inside, The Nashman quickly found an eatery and munched away before The Rosamunde and The Carnetnoir saved him from eating eveything on the conveyor belt...

Off inside the exhibition hall we went to see dead people. (More on that later)

Storm clouds gather as we leave the arena, back on HROS Orange Typhoon to have dinner at the South Bank...

PA/PR Gromit has noodles...

HRO Karl Willem, on a diet, has the healthful salad option.

The Nashman has the rice meal.

Sadly, we had to leave London to catch the train back to Hampshire.

..where we catch up on Sunday Newspaper reading.

Incidentally, thank god The Nashman can pee standing up because this train had a skanky toilet.

it still amazes me how you can pee and take a picture at the same time. i guess it takes practice.

the key is to pee when sufficiently flaccid. this way the trajectory is only down and not up
