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!

 

Tall Ships Regatta and Festival Greenwich/London

Standard

As you may have seen on “my beautiful things” blog the tall ships regatta started in Falmouth and sailed to Greenwich.

The Royal Borough of Greenwich is celebrating the largest fleet of Tall Ships to visit London in 25 years.

The start of the Festival was yesterday evening with music and fireworks.

The grounds of the historic old Royal Naval College was transformed into a huge aquarium filled with giant illuminated fish in a stunning underwater spectacle performed by a street theatre company.

As it was night, the pictures didn’t come out so well, but the atmosphere and ships I saw were amazing.

After the fireworks many ships passed us, including the Mercedes!

Here are the pictures….. (I might go tonight again for more fireworks…. and tall ships…. and pirates!)

Click on the pictures to see it better.

… and I met Jack Sparrow….

The fireworks were even better with my favourite music of Two Steps from Hell! I was in heaven!

A super evening out!
