cross town traffic, so hard to get through to you
The yellow lines and parking bays were switched off and most of the shops were closed for the long weekend.
We were on our way to a Spanish pirate restaurant for a late lunch tapas before heading south across the river for a family occasion.
El Pirata de Tapas has that casual London thing with close tables and a buzz. We enjoyed the selection and the time whizzed by. Then to the south. One of those situations where a few wrong road choices could add a penalty half hour to the journey.
We did okay though, not taxi driver precision, but still a good route south, including through some of those areas which I'd place slightly off of my own beaten track.
As always, there's little cross town routes that work better with instinct over knowledge.
