Huge thanks to Melissa of the barge, Hendrik on the Thames in London. She very kindly sent me this camera phone photo of our friends, Charley and Martin at their mooring near London's Tower Bridge - just to prove that they made it! You can just see their Albatros at the far end of the row, probably more recognisable by the shape and the lee boards than by the colours.
Melissa and her partner have their barge on the south side of the Thames and can see the new moorings from where they lie. It's so exciting to see a photo of the Albatros from someone else's angle. I haven't met Melissa, but will be sure to look her up when we next go to London, hopefully to see Charley and Martin celebrate their 'boat warming'.
The picture below is of another of the Albatros's neighbours. If you look at the second barge along on the moorings, I think you'll see it is the same as the Stormvogel as captured below by Koos on one of our visits to London. We subsequently learned that the owners were friends of Charley and Martin.
