A week late on this post. Went to Greenwich for a little wander. A UNESCO world heritage site, Cutty Sark- the world’s only existing tea clipper is now  a small museum of itself. Raised 3 metres above and supported structurally, definitely an architectural marvel! Next off, the maritime museum, the most current exhibit is Turner’s paintings of the sea. Realistic scenes of ships at war.

Then trekked up a hill for the observatory. I could feel the temperature drop as the altitude rose! Maybe a slight exaggeration… but it was worth it. Managed a picture with Greenwich Meridian Line
