On Thursday, July 9, 2015 we got up early to meet in the courtyard to go to the Southbank pier to take a river taxi to Greenwich. However, we had a little bit of a wait because there was a tube strike so everyone was trying to find alternative transportation. Once we got on the boat, we made a handful of stops before it jetted off to Greenwich. We got off the boat and headed towards the National Maritime Museum. Some of us got something to drink or eat because we had left so early. Then we met up with Mike Bevan, who split us up into two groups: one to go with him and one to go with his colleague. I was in the group with him. He gave us a tour of the library and archives and then brought us back downstairs to look at some of the items that he had pulled out for us to look at.
Then we were set free upon the town of Greenwich for the day. Some of us decided to go get something to eat. We landed on a place called Pie and Mash. I got a chicken and ham pie with mash. It was delicious! Then we went to the market that was set up to look around before we made the trek up to the Royal Observatory. Once we made the steep trek to the Royal Observatory we took pictures between the east and west longitude line.
Till next time!
