Went for a walk yesterday and to my annoyance a group of children and mothers had spread themselves at the bottom of the Thames foreshore steps meaning it was impossible to pass without getting within 2 meters. But I felt they were being thoughtless so I decided to press on and go around them very close to the wall but I didn’t want to go back through the group a second time. So I decided to walk over to the other staircase on the side of the Prospect of Whitby but it was intensely muddy with that concrete-like muck that sometimes collects on the shore so I had a rough go of it.
