I don’t have a good idea on what to call this post (by Rachel)

by on June 23, 2015

After an unsuccessful try yesterday due to weather, we were finally able to watch the changing of the guards today at Buckingham Palace.  Although the ceremony is quite long, watching the guards march and walk in perfect unison is quite amazing.  I am really glad we were able to watch the whole thing so now when people talk about the changing of the guards, I know what they’re talking about.

  
Once the ceremony was over and we had lunch, we took a boat ride to Greenwich down the Thames River.  It was cool to have a different perspective of London and learn about some of the bridges and buildings lined up along the river.  Once in Greenwich, we went straight to the observatory and stood on the Prime Meridian….

  
 as well as learned all about clocks and time and how important they were/are to ships and sailors.  How much clocks are used at sea isn’t really something you think about on a daily basis until you learn about how much they are needed.  The walk up to the observatory is quite steep, but the view from the top of the hill is spectacular, and as it turned out to be a beautiful day, we could see so much.  Although we didn’t get to spend too much time in Greenwich, I really enjoyed it and learned so much about something I had no knowledge of before.
