Unexpected magnificence

There is something I want to flag up today, simply because it's so stunning. Lyn and I were out and about in my powerchair yesterday, exploring near Shooters Hill and Oxlea's Wood, when we came across this view. It's a gap in the houses which lets you see all the way across London, and I found it magnificent. I was trundling along behind Lyn and it took my breath. Unfortunately you can't really appreciate the full awe of it on Google Streetview, but I will be heading that way again soon to see if I can see more; you must be able to see at least fifteen kilometres from there. Oxlea's wood itself struck me as having a mysteriousness and mystique to it which captivated me. I love the way the metropolis sometimes throws you these surprises: as I wrote here a couple of days ago, the magnificence of this city lies in it's diversity, and while it's a great pleasure to go up and explore it's mighty centre, you can also find spots of wonderousness here in the suburbs.
