Spring in London Town, Part 2: Hand in Hand in Greenwich

Pete and I have what we like to call "Our List," which is broken off into two categories. One is for things we wish to experience together one day and places we see ourselves travelling to in the future. The other is a list of smaller things we want to do or see in London. Greenwich had been on the London list for quite a while, so we finally went and explored it together a couple weeks ago. I had been once before, but I wanted to have Pete show me around. He was a frequent visitor of Greenwich while studying at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire Of Music and Dance during his weekends in sixth form. 

One thing I love about Greenwich is it's architecture. Most of the notable buildings in Greenwich were made in the English Baroque style throughout the late 1600s, and sit right next to the Thames. Between the Old Royal Naval College, The Queens House, and the National Maritime Museum, any architecture fanatic would be impressed with the beauty and grandiose visions these stunning buildings offer. Go inside these buildings, and you are greeted with high-ceilinged rooms of exquisite paintings, accented with intricate mouldings of gold and royal blue. A truly beautiful sight to look up at and to photograph. I'm so lucky that Pete also enjoys getting his camera out and documenting our adventures around London. He is very methodical and patient when shooting, particularly because he shoots analog, and has a great eye!

After exploring the buildings down below, we made our way up to the Royal Observatory (where the famous prime meridian is located). It was lovely to sit on one of the benches together, chatting and looking down on the vast city and the lush park. Eventually, dark, looming storm clouds started to zero in. So, we ventured back down to the docks to take one of the Thames Clippers home, a fun experience in itself, but not before splurging on records and an ice cream, first.
