Danny’s Holidays Part Drei

Standard

Another day we went sailing….. to China… to get some tea.

…..not really….

… we visited an English tea clipper the Cutty Sark from 1869.

I think my mum did already mention it in a blog post before but now we went inside this big Sailing ship.

It was amazing!

There were Tea chests, many ropes, and I had so much fun exploring the ship!

We could also walk underneath the ship, as it is all newly restored….. that was a view!

Definitely worth a visit!

When you come to London, I can take you there!

 

While we are talking ships….. my mum wanted to put more pictures from the second day of the festival on…. she did have more fun and more fireworks. She enjoyed it so much !

Enjoy!

 

Sunset therapy

Standard

I am a bit stressed lately, so I thought I need to do something about it.

I visited Greenwich, a London Borough, and home to the Cutty Sark , a tea clipper, a beautiful sailing ship from 1869.

The ship was badly damaged by fire on 21 May 2007 while undergoing conservation. The vessel has since been restored and reopened to the public on 25 April 2012

I visited the vessel in 1984 in it’s original glory… these are two pictures from my photo album then…

Now after the fire damage and long restoration it is back open to the public.

It is at the bank of the River Thames and around it are beautiful flowers.

 I walked along the river and saw the amazing sunset.

On my way home I have to change trains and have to go through a concrete jungle. Still it looks great with all the lights!

This is my London and I love it!

Watching the sunset is wonderful therapy for stress relief.

Highly recommendable!
