Victoria Park.

We have still not heard from the Optician regarding Dot’s glasses so instead of sitting around here we caught the bus to Malden Manor railway station. From there we caught the train to Waterloo  where we changed to the number 26 bus to Hackney.

The objective was to locate and visit Narrowboat Epiphany with John and Fiona who were moored along the Regents Canal at Victoria Park. The park is undergoing a major face lift with a new entranceway and fencing. The lake has been cleared of fish and drained to enable repairs and modifications to be carried out. A Chinese Pagoda is being built on the island which I believe will be a restaurant and a bridge to access it. It should look quite nice when it’s all completed.

It wasn’t too difficult to find John and Fiona who we had cruised with along the Rochdale Canal a couple of years ago. Fiona kindly made us some lunch and we had several hours of chat about our travels in the motorhome and future plans. Time flew too quickly and we had to say farewell once more to enable us to cross London before the commuter rush started. It was nice to meet up with John and Fiona once more and we wish them well for their cruises, hopefully for many years to come.
