Two Hemispheres at One Time!
One of the places I told Bill he had to take me before we moved out of England was Greenwich. As a Geography major and former cartographer, I NEEDED a picture of me on the Prime Meridian. Since Greenwich is only about a 2 hour drive from our house, we knew we could do it as just a day trip.
We ended up being ridiculously lucky with the weather on the Saturday we went—it was sunny, and even relatively warm. We even got a little bit sunburned—in England—in April—go figure! I thoroughly enjoyed finally checking the Prime Meridian off my list, and we also liked walking around some of the other areas of Greenwich. The National Maritime Museum is there (and free), there is a neat market there, and Madeline’s favorite part—a really nice kids’ playground. It was a really nice day, so much so that Madeline wants to go back!
