January 2020 Outing

Trinity Buoy & Docklands Trip Report

20th January 2020

12 of us went to the outing, most of us went by train to Stratford then to North Greenwich.

The ferry to the wharf was leaving in a few minutes when we arrived so no time to take any photographs at North Greenwich and the Millennium Dome. The ferry to Trinity Buoy Wharf was interesting, a great service that most people don’t know about. 

The Wharf was bit disappointing, lots of work going on and not as much art work as we expected. Others said that a lot art had been removed. Most of the workers and people there were very friendly, though me and Paul had an inquisition as to why we were photographing but no problem. An interesting place and a good lunch at the Fat Boy American Diner – a very delicious Hot Dog for me.

Then we all walked to Canary Wharf, and again a very interesting area, lots of new buildings, flats and offices, and as we got near Canary Wharf so many building sites. A huge change to the area from a few years ago.

Once in Canary Wharf lots of Light Sculptures. We took lots of ordinary shots but then most of us got more creative. Very difficult to create original shots about sculptures created by others but we did our best.

Five of us went to the Ruchi Indian restaurant when we got back in Billericay – a very good ending to the outing. And if anyone wants a meal at the end of the outings, you are all welcome and just let me know.

Best Wishes,
