Coffee in the City

As it’s a sunny afternoon, after lunch I went into Myddelton Square Garden and found a bench to sit on.

I had brought a book with me and alternated reading and watching the pigeons.

Then my phone pinged: it was an email from Tigger, proposing to meet for coffee when she left work at 6 pm. I was happy to agree and will go to her office so that we can go on together from there.

I preferred to catch a 153 as it is likely to be less crowded than the 205 at this time of day.

I have to change buses at All Hallows Church in London Wall.

Fortunately, I didn’t have long to wait for a 100 to come along.

As usual, before entering the office building, I went to take a look at St Katharine Docks. Once trading docks, they now accommodate luxury yachts, many of which are moored here more or less permanently.

At 6 pm we caught a bus to Bishopsgate and the branch of Black Sheep Coffee that is there. It has nice comfy settees – if you can find one free. And we did!

Afterwards, we went through this shopping arcade on our way to the bus station.

We crossed this open space which must have a name but I don’t know what it is.

It has a rather tame water feature. The black dots are not fish or fallen leaves but are in the pattern of the stone.

This way leads us around behind Liverpool Street Station with its great arched roof.

Once again we chose the 153 because all other routes would be crowded at this time in the evening and we might not even find a seat whereas the 153 starts empty from the station and so we have a choice of all the seats!

The bus carried us quickly back to the Angel and home where we are having a little rest before supper and a pleasant evening in.
