Two Sunday’s ago… wow time does really pass quickly, I ended up searching to attend a service and visit Temple Church which is seen in the DaVinici Code. If you want to watch here is a Video about temple church. I probably should have watched this before my attempt to find it, because I ended up never arriving at Temple Church. I am getting ahead of myself though, lets go back to the start of my morning.
As all mornings commence, I left Dinwiddy House, found the bus I was supposed to take, hopped on and made my way towards Temple Church. The stop I was told to get off at, is quite close to St. Paul’s as well.
Yet somehow, I did not follow these directions and they made no sense to me. I ended up getting off the bus around St. Paul’s, and then started walking hoping to find the Temple Church at this point I had about twenty minutes before the service started. I first started walking towards St. Paul’s and turned at this construction sight hoping that it was the right place to go, It wasn’t. I was actually walking away from the river which you can see I really was not supposed to be doing.
I ended up walking down Fleet Street, and ended up walking towards the river. At this point it was past 11:15 and I decided to take a photographic journey instead, enjoying some me time and taking a lovely walk. I didn’t end it with anything that I love, but I still was able to walk about and enjoy my time. So I walked down some creaky streets
At this point I had not given up on trying to find Temple Church, I walked towards the embankment to continue my escapade. I was determined to get to this location. I finally saw this:
I know that I must have been quite close, so I tried to follow the signs towards Temple Church, walked down another little alley way, and this is what I ended up seeing:
So I never did end up finding the Temple Church, I did find the Twinnings Factory, some lovely sights, have an amazing walk and actually ended up for the first time in Covent Garden, Seven Dials and a bit of Soho. I ended up in areas of Central London I hadn’t ever ventured out to, which is what these trips are for- to make myself get out of the Kings Cross area and try to learn about an area that I don’t know much about. The Sunday ended up at this lovely arts festival in Bloomsbury that was filled with cute food pop-ups, little art booths and actually there were activities going around all over the neighborhood, we just ran out of time to participate in them. Time goes by quickly.
