Rainy trip to Greenwich

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.

    oh WOW! You poor dear – you braved the rain for my little pebble. YOU are so sweet and kind in showing him a wonderful time. Those pictures are amazing. AND a trip to London. OH WOW! He is going to absolutely LOVE that. And my daddy – he is so jealous. He’s with your dad Misaki – he *loves* eggs benedict. I am so blown away with his sight seeing. The little character thinks he’s a secret agent. With all of that rain, I know he’s fitting right in! XOXO – Bacon

  6. Well even if the rain tried to ruin the day for Bashful and your Mum I think it turned out quite nice…….and a trip to The Smoke with her – wow what a treat THAT will be! I think Bashful would definitely like to see the crown jewels….of course if you could get in to see THE QUEEN and have Bashful sit on her lap, well, now THAT would be the ultimate!

    Huggies, Sammy

  11. London is our man’s favourite city. He has visited 4 times. Lady went with him 2 times. She thinks Bashful should visit Buckingham Palace! Lee and Phod

    Butt we digress… THIS was a super time that Bashful did have.

  16. I think it would be fabulous to see the Tower of London if you are near it! 🙂

    Looks like you guys saw some interesting things!

  18. Rachael says:

    Looks like a great trip! We think Bashful should have his photo taken on the tube!

  19. Oh, how fun!! Way back before I was born, Momma lived near Greenwich (in Blackheath) and took my Aunt Kaitlin the labrador to play in Greenwich Park all the time. She would stand at the top of that big steep hill by the Observatory and throw Aunt Kaitlin’s ball down it. It was the only way to tire her out! A few years ago, Grandma and Grandpa went back to London for a visit, and Grandma scattered Aunt Kaitlin’s ashes at the top of that hill because it was her favorite place in the world.
