Remember when a saunter down the Strand meant dodging the crowds
and hurrying across to the station meant sidestepping day-trippers.
Remember when tourists clambered onto repurposed Routemasters
and taxis queued across Westminster Bridge.
Remember when cruise ships docked at Liverpool appearing to dwarf the Liver Building
and flying out of Heathrow was being one in 78 million (per year).
But, most of all, remember when spending sunny days with visiting family was just . . . . quietly pleasurable and unremarkable.
