The weather was kind this morning so we made use of the Castle Shuttle which is Lincoln's Park and Ride service. Ideal for us as we are south of the city, the car park is just a grass field by a garden centre, but the buses are brand new, exactly on time and operated by cheerful drivers. We were surprised to have effectively a private bus in each direction! Our return driver explained that the service is only a month old and hasn't been well publicised yet. At just £6 for all our bus journeys and the car parking, it was perfect for us.
Our first city sight was this ancient gateway. Originally much higher than
Thomas 2 where I had possibly the best chai latte ever. The service was very slow, but the cakes, when they finally arrived, were delicious and most welcome. Having stayed up until 6am engrossed in the election coverage, I was already flagging and we had hardly started!

I'll leave you with these two sides of the Bridge. I thought these questions perfect for our current odyssey!
