Dive, dive, dive

Up early for a breakfast of spyware at 1 Parliament Street where getting in is a friendly business despite the bag scanner but getting out involves passing through a sealed tube that only opens on one side at a time. I expect this catches anyone fleeing the scene of a crime but it made me feel like I was on the set of Blakes Seven and about to be experimented on.

I walked into St James Park to find a loo and boggle at the prices at Inn the Park - for 5 the cauliflower soup had better be good - and watch balancing begging squirrels. I'm used to ducks that five. What I find disconcerting is when they come back to the surface not nose first but by popping up all at once like a rubber duck released from bondage.
