After a dayâ€™s training, my work held their annual awards night. This year it was on a boat cruising down the Thames.
I'm not one for boats, but I hate missing things so after a few Stugeron's we set off from Greenwich Pier on the 'Golden Salamander'. The trip was quiet choppy so I decided to make it a drink free evening, disappointing seen as it was a free bar! The boat had two decks, the lower one was used for the formal dinner (Very nice, great dessert!) and the awards (only a nomination for me, close but no cigar!) then a top deck was the 'party' room complete with disco lights and music.
The cruise took us past the Maritime Museum and the Dome downstream to the Thames Barrier before turning round and heading up stream.
We docked at just gone midnight and my choice of not drinking had been a good one, I'm glad I managed to stayed on the boat but felt a bit rough and was still bobbing up and down after the short walk back to our hotel.
Unfortunatly I didn't take my camera for the trip but hunting down some picture taken by the others so hopefully some to show soon :)
