HMS Belfast is an absolute delight and I've lived here for 10 years without spending more time on board. Is it weird to say that this WWII naval frigate SMELT NICE? Because she did. Like beeswax and clean laundry. It was a sensory delight. Also, lets talk about the colour scheme on this boat - pale mint greens, dark smoky blue-greys. Heaven. Utter heaven. For all the senses. Except if you are claustrophobic then its a bit unpleasant maybe. Mum sat this one out because it reminded her too much of Grandad, who was on board a ship not unlike the Belfast for most of his life. For me it was wonderful to get a sense of what that might have been like for him, and I thought about him a lot while I was shuffling up and down ladders wearing a very unsuitable skirt. Note: wear trousers next time.
Dad and Hamish really loved the Egyptian part of the British Museum, even I wasn't that bothered by the crowds and really enjoyed it. St Pauls was closing so we missed out on that, stink.
All in all we didn't do everything we had hoped, but the fam will be back for the odd day here and there inbetween their jaunts further afield so there is plenty of time. I did shoot 3 rolls of film with all of the Museuming, and I can't wait to get those processed. Stay tuned!
These were all shot on my iPhone5 and edited with VSCOcam. You can read my original tour outline over here - and please share any of your London adventures I might have missed off my list in the comments!
