Walking to the cathedral, most of the football supporters were already knocking back their pints in numerous pubs along the way but posses of them were roaming the streets. Walking back to the station, the streets were deserted apart from a bunch of goths on a street corner. They didn't look medieval but they have the period right for living in Lincoln.
When I got to the station I was fascinated by an eccentric old woman crippled with osteoporosis and too many shopping bags. With her platinum hair piled high on her head and big, black sunglasses, she reminded me of a shrivelled Jackie O. She was accompanied by her daughter, tall and upright with masses of long blonde hair that tumbled down her back. At over 50 she really should get it cut. The little old woman was fanatically feeding all the pigeons she could see. I kept taking pictures of them as surreptitiously as I could. As a result, none of them came out very well. They caught the same train as I did. The last I saw of them was them climbing into a taxi at Nottingham station.
I wonder what made them go all the way to Lincoln to go shopping?
