Memories of The Mayflower, Rotherhithe
It was a cold but bright January day and, away from the army of tourists and the shoppers, desperate to catch the final sales, it was perfect for a walk to Greenwich.
The Thames was grey, rippled from the wake of the Thames Clippers as we walked first along the Embankment and then the South Bank past Tower Bridge through Bermondsey.
At Rotherhithe, halfway to Greenwich, it was the perfect time for a perfect pint, the sun streaming through the window.
It was just for a little while as there were still four miles to walk before ‘The Cutty Sark’, the ship not the pub, and the end of Walk 1.
