After long time of thinking I decided to treat myself to a new boat. Originally it looked that it would be a long wait, but that suited me fine, since I had my other new boat to play with anyway.
Then an email came and everything was happening fast. Rather too fast, within a week I became owner of new boat. Not wanting to upset my other one, I took time, and really there needs to be a bit of fuss if something is to be unwrapped; and this one came in bubble-wrap.
However, not wanting to leave in unattended for too long I took it for a spin or rather roll.
Later I decided that if one can roll a bubble-wrap, one should be able to paddle one, too.
One can, but it is hard work, since bubble-wraps are not really watertight.
But is there any other better place to uncover a new boat than with Tower bridge as a backdrop? Probably yes, but this place suited me just fine.
