Yuck! What a horrid day it has been today, a complete contrast to the weekend when the sun kindly shone without interruption. And whilst the Model was a-partying yesterday, the three of us were able to take a short trip over to Greenwich for lunch and a stroll. It's always a busy place to be but, even so, it was easy to leave the crowds behind as we walked along the river and then underneath it too .. great fun. The Maritime Museum is a sight to behold with its incredible Charles II (17th Century) architecture and manicured grounds and, of course, Greenwich is home to the famous Cutty Sark, last surviving tea clipper that not even a great fire could bring to an end. That impressive statue is of Sir Walter Raleigh, voted amongst the 100 greatest Britons, despite the fact he was executed by order of King James I. His head was embalmed and presented to his wife .. something I remind my own husband of, given he also spends too much time in the New World!
Happy week to you.
