What better way to celebrate our anniversary then visiting the Cutty Sark, the world’s sole surviving tea clipper, weighing 963 tons. Built in 1869 to carry tea back from China, she visited many major ports in the world and set record-breaking passage times.
She was methodically loaded to carry the maximum amount of cargo back and forth across the seas!
My hand trying to show the size of the chain links!
Guess Steve got his sailing skills honestly!!
Cannot imagine doing work on the miles of rigging on this clipper ship!!
Overlooking the Thames River.
Numerous figureheads from the bows of ships over the years! Below is the Cutty Sark’s.
The Cutty Sark and her keel below the water line!
One of the anchors is behind (aft) of the name above.
Steve (of course) liked the title of this gym! I’ll take the Jaguar! LOL!
We then passed through the gate of The Old Royal Naval College of Greenwich.
Above and Below are the Painted Hall in King William’s Court.
Below, we enjoyed watching sunset over the Thames.
We had a great day celebrating our 37th! Our toast to many more adventures together!
