My travelling partners and I got the wild idea that we could walk thru London. We got the wild idea to see London from the top. We opted not to return by tube.
We walked from St. Paul’s Cathedral, across the Millennium Bridge, and thru the Tate Modern.
We meandered down the River Thames,
and across the Westminster Bridge,
through Piccadilly Circus,
and to the Marble Arch to pick up our bus back to Oxford.
Turns out we could see a lot of London from the top. It took several hours and covered almost five walking miles, including one detour to an authors’ house.
We also found a self-cleaning toilet on a street corner and my sister’s sister-in-law in a souvenir shop.
I was looking for directions. She was looking for a shirt.
