We learned, via Diamond Geezer, that the site of the London Olympics in 2012 will be closed for five years from tomorrow.
This meant that today was a perfect day for a walk in the "country"! (if you ignore the weather)
So, eight of us met at Bromley-by-Bow tube at noon and walked along the various waterways that mark the rough perimeter of the southern-half of the site.
We then headed back to the real river down the Limehouse Cut and had lunch in Wapping.
