    All that history, then the kayaks. Nice series of pictures.
    I got the firefighter picture with a longish lens. The fire was at a house in my neighborhood so I was able to get there while the action was still hot, so to speak.

    Thank you for the Southwark tour and blog of the week honors!!! I seem to recall I visited a Golden Hinde replica as a kid during a school field trip. I wonder if it is the same one, but it was in San Francisco.

    love the architecture! I wish they’d make buildings nowadays that ornate, much more pleasant to the eyes than the strip malls we see everywhere…
