Figureheads

I do like the little dog.  He looks like a fiercely loyal friend, or a headbanger.  😛

The First Floor

There isn’t a lot on the first floor but it does provide an elevated view of  ground floor exhibits.

Statues - Maritime Museum

It was him.                                       No, it was him with the sword.   How dare you sir. I will draw my sword and cut off your nose.

No, it was me with the smug expression, and I’ve got a scroll.  😛

  1. My dad went to Uni at Greenwich. Once he took us there to look at a road he’d helped construct after he qualified as a civil engineer. Then we went to see the Thames Barrier. We completely bypassed the maritime museum.

    Since then, I’ve taken my kids on a boat trip. I have no plans to live in London again but if I did Greenwich would be one of the places that would tempt me.

    • Definitely a better part of London. The only thing that puts me of, are all these people wandering around with cameras. 😛

    On a side note, that glass is lovely!

    • LOL. I think you nicht that (although some say Ni).

      Nevertheless, thank you for the offer of molesting my legs. Fortunately I have found a more enjoyable means of becoming legless. 😛
