Day three the number six

Around midday I caught a bus and tram and then the Thameslink service to Elephant and Castle: a station nicely poised at the boundary of zone 1 and 2. It was then a short ride on the No 133 to Borough Market on a fruitless pursuit of porridge-the people are only there Wed-Sat and this was a Monday. From here I walked along the South Bank to Waterloo Bridge which I then crossed to reach the starting point of the No 6 to Willesden bus garage. It has recently taken a deviation and now runs along Piccadilly rather than Oxford Street. I left on VWH2309 a Volvo B5LH Wrightbus Gemini 3 which was almost brand new at 1340 having just missed the 1330 departure. This trip, as with the previous five buses I have taken, was around or over an hour in duration and it reached its ultimate destination at 1455. I subsequently caught a No 266 to Willesden junction and then the London Overground to Clapham Junction with a Southern train home from there, thereby avoiding zone 1.
