So with that in mind we arranged to meet up at Trafalgar Square 07:00 bright and early, ok not so bright ;)

Once we met up we headed towards St. Paul's Cathedral with the dawn following us.

Not many people where about at this time of the morning but there was other residents running about as you can see with this urban fox just ran right past us without batting an eye.
|Hello Mr. Fox|

On we went to Canary Wharf, I'd known there was a fountain here but never really took the time to take any photos of it.
While I was photographing the fountain I found these two characters.

Canary Wharf was a basically a ghost town with the workers still on their Christmas holidays it was just us a few tourist & security guards. We pushed on to the Greenwich Foot Tunnel which again was pretty deserted compared to how its been in the past.

When we reached the O2, we was abit surprised that it was quiet full. Seemed to be some kind of Frozen event going on as there was alot of Frozen Princess running about with parents.
We managed to find the "Slug and Lettuce" which wasn't too busy & had a pretty big all day breakfast which hit the spot. After our meal we decided to head back to Embankment via The Thames Clipper River Boat. I think my partner's knee was bothering him a little so was a good decision not to cycle all the way back. Seeing we had been over & under the Thames it seemed fitting that we went on it too. Not long after we got to Embankment we headed out separate ways home.

Once again its always good to ride with my cycling partner, Mr. OrangeBrompton, to slow it down a little to take photographs of this great city of ours.
Bring on 2015 I say.
