I was pleased to say that Hemel Hempstead looked a picture, the flower borders along the river would have been spectacular if the sun had been shining, not a bit of litter anywhere and lots of tidy little family groups enjoying it. The usual ignorant white van men at the bus stops bend. Plenty of buses other than longer distance stuff which is still off pretty well everywhere, I heard August mentioned for National Express coaches I hope it is sooner. Everyone seemed more friendly although when a Group4 van stopped right in front of me I felt like letting the tyres down, selfish I rule the world attitude. Friendly bus drivers there, most waved, still wet at times. Then I went to St Albans, with some approach roads to centre blocked off I parked at the multi story which was mostly empty. I thought perhaps the centre would be car free but constant jam blocking views of buses as usual, I'll put the shots I got with Hemel Hempstead. Bustling thriving shopping centre good feel to it, other than the narrow roads blocked off there wasn't anything else noticeably Corona orientated and people certainly weren't being balled out for walking the wrong way like Watford. It looked as busy as ever so commercially coming through it all ok, perhaps Watford council needs to visit, mind you what are the attraction of Watford, yes its a bit like a day trip to Pyong Yang without the visa and hassle and no flights required.
So a day which was marked by poor weather and strange reactions to Corona recovery period. Photos start with Pyong Yang ( used to be Watford).
