Just tourists.

Still moored at Paddington Basin.

Yesterday we just had a quiet day on the boat enjoying the relative peace and quiet of this inner city haven. Later in the day we took a walk out towards Notting Hill to burn off a few excess calories.

In the afternoon we finally got a text message to say that Mary, Dot's sister and her husband Tony had landed at Heathrow. A short time later a text arrived with train arrival details so off we went to Paddington station to meet the weary travellers who had just flown in from Hong Kong (13 hour flight).

This morning we walked down to Little Venice to check out the pump out and rubbish facilities. Just as well we didn't take the boat as the toilet and pump out facilities  were out of action under going a major pipe refit. They should be back up and running tomorrow.

We then visited Paddington station to get some travel info for Mary and Tony for their trip to Ireland.
