It's been a busy month, or at least June was a busy month and I've been a bit poor at adding my weekend walks roundups, so here are the two I did last weekend and also the weekend before that. All in one post.
Above, you can see the group that joined me on the walk from Trafalgar Square to St Paul's cathedral last Saturday. They're standing next to the only surviving City gate, called Temple bar, although it's not in it's original position. I had spotted one of street artist Ben Wilson's bits of chewing gum art and had drawn it to the group's attention, when Bruce ... one of the group members discovered another one, which is a great depiction of the gate itself. It looks like this.
For Sundays walk around east London, it was such a massive group that I had to climb on a wall to take the photo and make sure I could fit them all in. Although it was a mix of people from India, the States and Spain we also had Gareth who both lives and works in the area. Bruce, Kelly and Kelsey who had done the Saturday one even came back and did another. Dedication indeed.
Here are the groups from the previous weekend. I was delighted to see Supro (from India) back for another walk. He'd been on one last year and brought some friends with him this time. Oh yes, and Sean (from Australia) was back for his second walk too.
