Last photo in October

With just a few minutes to spare before leaving London on a train to Yorkshire which I feared would be over-crowded and a mask-free zone (I was right on both counts, unfortunately), there was just time to have a brisk walk in the rain in the area between Kings Cross Station and Coal Drops Yard.

For Brian (AKA Bushboy)’s Last on the Card for October.

I'm retired and living in North Yorkshire, where I walk as often as I can, write, volunteer, and travel as often as I can.

  1. King’s Cross area has changed dramatically since the last time I frequented that station. And the crowds are one reason why I prefer my car. Hope you keep safe.

    1. Thanks. I’m torn. It’s not sustainable to keep using cars instead of public transport. But there should be requirements to be more public spirited. I’ve just done a test. Negative. Phew!

      1. And there needs to be more public transport in rural areas. We could not manage without our car. Or even cheaper ‘public’ taxis, which could be electric.

      2. I agree. We have a poor bus service. If I go into town on the bus, I have to wait for hours to come back. And going out in the evening? Or Sundays? You must be joking!


  2. I love train travel! We traveled that same train from London to Yorkshire in 2017. How things have changed since then. We would never have guessed that masks would be an essential accessory!

    1. Well – they’re supposed to be essential – notices everywhere. But few comply. In normal times I love train travel too. Passing landscapes and a good book. What could be better?

    1. It’s all such a continuing nightmare. I hope your son is getting through the worst. Yes, Kings Cross has become unexpectedly vibrant these last few years. And expensive ….

      1. That’s infuriating! Masks are required and it is enforced on public transportation here. But then we’re still loosey goosey on lock downs and are sadly #1 on deaths and infections. I’m glad you weathered the storm and emerged safely.

  3. It’s been a while since I caught up with your blog, Margaret. For some reason, I had to re-follow you! Yes, that balance of keeping ourselves healthy vs living in constant fear. Fresh air and still being able to enjoy London was a bonus.

    1. Suzanne, thank you so much. WP has a mind of its own, doesn’t it? London was great – though the journey there and back was a nightmare. Crowded trains + no masks was not a happy recipe!
