Four-hundred miles apart

Photos taken during a trip to London to visit my sister on 21st April, 2003. Don't ask me how I managed to take photos in both Edinburgh and London on the same day. I have no recollection, but the dates of my photos indicate that this did happen.

I came upon this very tame squirrel tucking-in to a banana outside Euston station, London, on 21st April, 2003. I'd have had an excellent photo if only it had been sharp, but naturally the squirrel wouldn't sit still for long enough.
