Monday--Au Revoir Walsingham

Hello London!

semi-overcast 55 °F

Monday: I attended the early (0730) Mass, which was simple, and done according to the Roman Missal (3rd translation); an elderly priest was the celebrant. Then it was to do final packing and hit the road.

My pocket camera had broken. Foolishly, I had it in the same pocket as some other things, and I bent the lens cover. I had contemplated going to the site of Downton Abbey, but that was three hours west of London (and I was about 2 hours East of London); and their tickets were all booked through September anyway. So that will have to wait for another trip to Jolly Ol’.

I found a camera shop in Norwich, on my way to London, where they fixed the camera. Then it was to Julian’s Shrine (Dame Julian of Norwich, the 14th century anchoress and mystic), and a quick tour of the Cathedral. I was last here with Fr Tony Noble and his pilgrims in 2007. It was good to return to these familiar sites, if only briefly.

Then it back into the Golf, and the motorway to London. I checked back into the Union Jack Club, went to their convivial bar, had a dinner of a club sandwich, then went to pack.

Hmmmmm. I notice a pattern here: pack/unpack; pack/unpack.

I’m glad to be seeing all I’m seeing, but am glad I had a complete fortnight in one place at the beginning of these journeys.
