Yesterday my Sister, Bro-In-Law and I ventured to the capital to visit the poppies and the Tower of London. With time to spare we took a walk along the river and through St Kathrine’s Dock, stumbling by chance up on the Queen’s Row Barge the Gloriana as seen during the Jubilee Regatta.
Starting our way back towards the Tower Gardens we came up an incline and as we were getting our bearings, gazing at Tower Bridge to our right and working out where to head to cross the busy streets a white van beeped at us, politely wanting us to cross infront. We waved him on as we were not sure what our plans were.
The next thing he hops out his van and comes towards us, assists with getting the wheelchair off the pavement [not that deep a curb] and weaves us through to the other side and gets my wheelchair safely on the pavement. We thank him and off he trotts without fuss or favour into his van and jumps in and heads off on his merry way.
Not many can say they stopped traffic at the Tower Bridge.
I’ll blog more about our day across the weekend – Sister still has my camera in her bag … also my purse .. oww-err!!
