Photos from the Cutty Sark & A Trip Up the Thames

Holidaying in my own city continues to provide me with excellent entertainment but it does mean I forget all my anecdotes by the time I get home.



i took this photo of the officer’s kitchen on the cutty sark in a mild rage because IT IS BIGGER THAN THE KITCHEN IN MY FLAT

Worth note: it was been a very beautiful day, the Cutty Sark has become much more education-and-activity oriented since I visited when I was 8, and CityCruise have an unofficial but quite funny commentary on the sights you can see on the way up form Greenwich to Westminster.

Also I had one of these recently. I got it because I demanded that I be given a cocktail that the bartender thought I should have, and this was what he thought. Previously the same bartender has invented a black cherry daiquiri for me due to a lack of strawberries. The BFI Riverfront Bar is one of my favourite places to cocktail for a reason!

    1. From what I read at the site, the LFB ensured that they lost very little original material, and they made a point of distinguishing between original and restored material inside the ship. It looks pretty damn good!

      1. That’s amazing. I remember seeing the fire on the news with my heart in my boots, but I should have had more faith in restorers. They do astonishing work.
