London continued: Oxford & Hyde

IMG_8182Monday was a beautiful sunny day so we decided to take a small trip, we took the Dlr train to Lewisham and then walked to Grreenwich park and visited the Maritime museum. IMG_8183

He spent an hour picking out whisky and I was bored to tears, but I tolerate his hobbies since he tolerates mine. It’s only fair after all. We then went to our tube station, had dinner at a pizzeria there and then went to our hotel. We still have two more days to go, but I’ll post about them tomorrow.

  1. Oh, that hotdog looks so good! It’s been many years since I’ve been to Greenwich park. I grew up a little over 10 miles away so went a lot in my youth.

  2. When I lived in London, I stayed just up the road from Hyde Park, so would often go walking there at nights after work (which scared the crap out of my male co-worker who considered it ‘dangerous’, oops)! Coming from a seaside town, I suppose I need ‘scenery’, rather than constant concrete!
