As we drove round and into the Asda car park, a lorry came hurtling towards us through the empty car park. Had it not been for the fact that there was a shopping trolley in the way, I swear we would have been run into and there would have been a really nasty accident. I very much doubt whether either of us would be here now to tell the tale. The driver was being totally reckless. I presume he'd been to unload his goods somewhere in Asda, or had been to buy something and was in a tearing hurry to get home, but in all honestly it was really dangerous. Had we been able to see his registration plate we could have reported him, but as it was under-lit where we were and there was very little light we could see nothing and the lorry sped off before we could read the number. We just sat and drew breath before we went into the supermarket and got milk and breakfast cereal, so we could go home and have something to eat before we went to the train station.
It was a fairly mild day, surprising considering the time of year. There were a great many people walking along the path, looking in the shops which lined the route and generally enjoying themselves. We went past The National Theatre and then eventually reached Tate Modern. This has been open ten years and was converted from a former power station which was used to power the London Underground. It has become quite a good attraction mainly, I would say, because it is free to enter.
