Every year I get to spend a full day with my Dad doing whatever takes my fancy.
We call this our "Daddy-Daughter Day".
Last year, DDD was spent at the Titanic Exhibition at the o2 but it wasn't a brilliant day as my Dad is a complete stickler for me being punctual and well TFL had other plans for me that day.
Oh well, you win some, you lose some.
This years DDD however was absolutely awesome.
Deciding what to do on my DDD took a lot of time and after a few weeks pondering I finally settled on going for breakfast in Balham then spending the day in Greenwich, having a wonder around the museums and exploring the area as I had never (shock horror) been down that way before.
Dad arrived nice and early at our flat (I can't be late if he is coming to me, sneaky!!) and we headed out for breakfast at my favourite; Lavish Habit.
Arriving as the shop opened, we bagged my favourite table right next to the window with the best view of all the shop's little treats!
2013 Daddy-Daughter Day at The Royal Museums Greenwich; sea, ships, time and the stars.
First stop was the Cutty Sark.
Next stop was being silly. Also known as "Dad's tourist pose".
The picture of my Dad makes me laugh every time.
Next stop was the Ansel Adams exhibition at the National Maritime Museum. As there was no photography allowed you will all have to have a look at some of his incredibly work via the wonderful internets to get a sense of how talented this guy is. It really is worth it.
Next on the agenda was a trip to the Royal Observatory. Did you know that the Royal Observatory is the home of Greenwich Mean Time and the Prime Meridian of the WORLD??? I didn't.
I literally had a "face palm" moment when that realisation hit me. And there I was thinking I was an intelligent woman. Not so much.
After having one too many "oh my goodness this space stuff is mental" and "I feel far too small in this universe right now" moments we decided that we were due some fresh air and a walk.
Stumbling across these guys put a huge smile on our faces.
