Rainy trip to GreenwichPosted: December 30, 2013
Today mummy and Bashful set out to visit Greenwich. Only the weather was awful. Typically now they are home it’s brightened up, but when they left it was miserable.
Anyway, mummy hooked Bashful up with an Oyster card and they jumped on the DLR to Greenwich. As soon as they got out of the station, mummy was soaked to the bone, which meant she wasn’t keen to hang around. On a nice day Greenwich is a lovely place to explore so it was a bit of a shame. Had daddy been there they would have likely spent their time in the Union pub, where according to him they make a mean eggs benedict. But instead, mummy and Bashful checked out the Cutty Sark, took a soggy stroll round Greenwich Park and then walked up the very steep hill to the Observatory. The view from the top is pretty amazing but as it was so grey you can’t see much from the photos. You can just make out The O2 (formerly the Millennium Dome) if you look closely.
I do feel bad for Bashful, but I guess it wouldn’t be a proper trip to the UK without some good old-fashioned terrible British weather lol.
Mummy is back to work on Thursday and is planning to take Bashful into London to play tourist before he heads home next week. Is there anywhere in particular you would like Bashful to visit? We’ll try to fit your suggestions into his trips.
