Modesty & “The” Pedestrian Crossing

Hubby has always had this thing about a pedestrian crossing . . . not just any pedestrian crossing, but “The” Pedestrian Crossing!!! It was one of the first places he just had to visit when he first arrived in London and, for the past 35 years, he has been trying to get me to walk across it. So …I finally did …!!!

BUT … neither of us realised that, unlike when he first strolled across it alone all those years ago, there is NOW a video camera there! It was only after my Sinful Stroll that we realised we were on film!  (Click screen below)


“I suppose we shouldn’t be too surprised” he said after our discovery.  “After all, it is probably THE most famous pedestrian crossing all across the universe.”


Still, had I’d known about the videocam beforehand, I’m not sure I would have been able to act naturally as I stepped out onto the crossing.


Because, although it’s not on a long and winding road, it was still quite busy . . .


… with cars,  buses, taxis and other pedestrians … here there and everywhere!


And I’m sure I sensed a taxi slowing down and the driver offering a ticket to ride!


So you can imagine why I let out a shout when I reached the other side!!!


But, do you want to know a secret? I found every little thing about my stroll wonderfully exciting and fun.
So much so that I wanted to share it with you here … from me to you!!!


And, as Hubby says, it may not be something your mother should know, but hopefully when I’m sixty four, I’ll look back at these photos … and that video … and feel glad all over.

Join all the other people feeling glad all over this Sinful Sunday

  19. Thank you for all the lovely comments. It was such fun!!!
    We didn’t discover about the vidcam until we were back home later in the day and researching and reminding ourselves of some of the song titles. Suddenly there it was!!!

  20. This is so incredibly fantastic!! I’m so glad you didn’t know about the video, you are so free and happy as you cross the street. While the photos are fantastic, I am completely in love with the video. It’s like a romantic movie played out before our eyes. You and your hubby are so sweet together on this scavenger hunt adventure. It’s really, really wonderful.
