I'm going to roundup two sets of weekend walks in one go here, beginning with the weekend of the 6th & 7th September. I've had quite a few repeat offenders or customers as I should perhaps call them over the last few weeks. It's always nice to see people coming back and trying a different walk, or in some cases, doing the same walk again. This was the case with Libby on the Saturday morning walk from Trafalgar Square to St Paul's. She brought along her friend Elizabeth (visiting from Texas) and were joined by Tony from the Netherlands and Liz and her son Tom from England. You can see them on the left standing in front of the church of St Martin within Ludgate, a possible candidate for one of the churches that feature in the nursery rhyme 'Oranges and Lemons' and the verse "You owe me five farthings, say the bells of St Martin's."
Top right is the afternoon group just by the original site of the Globe Theatre on Bankside, made famous by a certain William Shakespeare. Matt and his mum Sue were back for their second walk with me, as was Lucy. Tony who had done the morning walk and hadn't planned on coming along on the afternoon walk joined us too. He obviously had nothing better to do.
Sunday was a bit of a weird one with loads of people dropping out and then Angela (back for her second walk) and John from Glasgow arriving a bit late. All credit to them for making it at all. You can see Monica from Germany, Rachel from America and Geiche from Germany standing next to Daniel DeFoe's grave in Bunhill Fields Cemetery.
For the weekend of the 13th & 14th September, we begin with Andrew and Cassy from the States on our way through Guy's Hospital. It's an area of the hospital I learned from Matt the week before (he'd studied there to become a doctor) that is known as 'the spit' due to the amount of tuberculosis patients it once housed.
Top right is the Sunday group on our usual jaunt around east London which featured Heidi who was back for her second walk. Finally the bottom photo is the group from the Saturday morning walk outside Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, which featured Chris and Caroline back for their second walk with me.
