Despite the weather reports (or at least the one I checked) promising unbounded hours of near scorching sunlight on Saturday, we began the walk from Trafalgar Square to St Paul's cathedral on Saturday morning in the rain ... and cold. However, 12 people from around the globe who had evidently checked the same weather report as me turned up. You can see them below on Fleet Street. There is absolutely no significance as to why I arranged everyone around a post box. We weren't collectively posting letters or anything like that. I just liked it. The group consisted of an Australian, a couple of Americans, a Swede, an Italian, an Israeli, two people from Wales, two more from the north east and even someone from London. They were a nice bunch.
The group in the afternoon for the walk that heads over to Bankside on the south side of the river was considerably smaller ... with just three people; James, Emma & Sean. Last year someone did a whole walk on roller boots and I was delighted that James (from Scotland via Australia) turned up on Saturday afternoon, brandishing a skateboard. I was thinking that he would dazzle us with his skateboarding skills but he in fact just carried it for the duration. Oh well ... you can't have everything, but he did very kindly let me have a go on his skateboard at the end. I took the photo of them as we passed through Borough Market.
The group on Sunday for the east London walk was also quite select, but the sun did actually decide to make an appearance. Ksenia from Russia had done a walk with some of her friends at the beginning of the year and was back with her half sister on a bit of a holiday. They were joined by Maureen, Malcolm and Elidh from Scotland.
