What’s the time Mr Wolf?

As you might be able to tell by today’s title, we visited the home of time – Greenwich. The big D supported local trade by having a swift half of Meantime beer, whilst the Big M had a great time browsing the crafts at the covered market.

An interesting fact about Greenwich is that the World’s first weather forecast was issued from the Royal Observatory in 1848 by James Glaisher.

I also expanded my art education by spotting John Reardon’s Monument to a Dead Parrot, which was somewhat different to the old masters I saw last week at the National Gallery.

However, the highlight of the day for me, despite missing the tall ships by a day, was getting there and back by boat. We took the clipper down the Thames from Blackfriars Pier to the Cutty Sark.

It was fab, watching the sights float by, including seeing St Katharine’s Dock, where we were a few weeks ago. It was really easy to manoeuvre the buggy on board and I was also able to sit at the front window and have a bit of a crawl around.

I’ve decided when I’m a commuter in about 21 years time I’ll definitely catch the boat to work.
