It's tipping down and I talk to the only person (me) on Kingston bridge. By nine fifteen there's still but one. Others may be heading directly to elevenses so the quick route it is via Hampton Court, Lower Sunbury, Shepperton (where it clears), and Laleham. In Staines Irene, and Pam (by phone) can't be persuaded that one point is theirs for the taking. At Runnymede David, Don, Pete and Lisa are swapping teapots. The yield from our wait is nil so it's back naturally in the dry. Well almost - after exiting Kingston town centre, claps of thunder accompany another downpour. Around 31 miles (longer than Wednesday's three stoppers!).
