Kings Cross wonderland
I had a day trip to London last week for a brief reunion with my sweet grand-daughter. She's thriving and seems a happy little soul most of the time. She has recently learned to squeal - apparently just for the fun of it! - and is getting very 'conversational'. I was granted some delightful smiles.
I was happily surprised at Kings Cross, the mainline rail terminal where the Leeds train arrives and departs, to find the new concourse open. Very smart and spacious it is too, a thousand times better than the previous cramped lobby and with much better facilities. It made my short wait quite a pleasure. I envisage the view from the mezzanine floor will become a much-photographed scene, akin perhaps to that famous view of Grand Central Station in New York. I tried and failed to get an effective picture of blurred figures hurrying. It didn't quite work, as there were too many people standing still and that spoiled the effect. I needed a tripod too but that's one thing I generally don't carry with me in London!
[By the way, can someone please tell me how I can fix my blogs 'comments' so that I can add a reply linked to each comment? Alan, Betsy and others can do this but I can't figure out how to.
Later... Thanks Diane, embedded comments have done the trick.]
