Haven from Oxford St

You're in the middle of Oxford St with bruised shoulders and sore feet with only half your shopping done. A coffee is now essential to your well being. Oh no and now it's raining!

Phew St Christopher's Place is like a haven a few steps away. Coffee, recharged, time to take a couple of pictures. I forgot how pretty it is here.

You manage to make the rainy pavements look beautiful! It does look a very pretty place.

I agree, a very nice picture. And I can understand the feeling you describe very well. A coffee break can make all the difference on a shopping day.

Great. It looks really like giant light raining. I wish you a merry pre-Christmas period!

Beautiful shot! You brought back some great memories I have of shopping on this street with my dad who suddenly turned into a great shopper. As long as I can remember he always hated shopping, but turn him loose on Oxford Street and he was a different person all together.

I want to hang out the street!

Absolutely gorgeous. Shopping near there would be worth the hassle of shopping, tired shoulders and feet.

It is a neat pedestrian precinct. I remember ambling through there in December in the rain/snow.

It would make a good Christmas card, with the atmosphere of The Rev. Robert Walker Skating.

I don't think I have ever escaped to St Christopher's Place, but I may need to go check it out tomorrow afternoon, after a tough few hours on Oxford street!
