Greenwich - where hemispheres meet!
Last Saturday (27th), a fabulous group of singles and myself had a day out in Greenwich.
We were not lucky with the weather, but we knew what was coming, and everyone dressed in their warmest, comfiest clothing.
Nicola, our Blue Badge Guide, took us on a journey from the beginning and had the group engaged with her fun and compelling stories about the Cutty Sark, Old Naval College, The Queens House, The Royal Observatory and The Maritime Museum. She had everyone captivated with her expert knowledge and her incredible connection with the group.
All this before lunch!
Lunch was served at The Maritime Museum.
After lunch, when everyone was fed, watered, and chatting, we had some fun with the group mixed up and split into two teams. The rivalry was intense, and the winners scraped by with a half-point lead!
It was time for Greenwich Market. The ambience was Christmasy and cosy. Time for a hot mulled wine, and then it was time to go home.
Our next day out will be in Winchester on Tuesday 28th December. There will be a guided tour, and a visit to the Great Hall with lunch included.
