Maritime museum trip and Cutty Sark - Oct 2015

The Cutty Sark and I go way back. I went only to look at it from the outside as the main aim of my trip was to see the National Maritime Museum. However after that I was very disappointed with the Museum and decided to pay to have a proper look at the Cutty Sark. I had wanted to visit it for years. My Dutch grandad used to have a model of it and the ship, therefore, had been a part of my early years. I do remember he had several more Cutty Sark objects which meant visiting it was a connection with him. It was a very strange feeling to finally be standing on a ship I had always thought of visiting but never had actually done it. 

It was not disappointing! I always thought the glass under it was odd, but having a coffee while sitting under the ship was quite something. All the old figureheads from long dead ships is also very haunting.

The ExCeL centre is only a few stops away from me on the Docklands Light Railway so I popped into the London Comic Con

British Museum trip, after all this can't the human race do better?

Mixed feelings about the British Museum today, all that international culture and history, and today the human race is arriving at a point of mass extinction and exploitation of the planet, surely we can do better than this? (Nov 2015)
