On Saturday Dianne and I were lucky enough to attend a bloggers preview of the Caird Library at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. It was pretty awesome - we got taken upstairs to the store rooms. The amount of documents and books they have in unbelievable! The lovely people there got out some old artefacts for us to look at which were really interesting but the best part was really just getting to look at their extensive book collection. Dianne spent some time looking over a shelf of colour coordinated books on polar exploration while I drooled over a beautiful bound set of Captain Cook journals. They had a really good selection of books on my two Navy favourites - Cook and Nelson! I copied a few titles down to search for at a later date to add to my own collection.
Check out Dianne's photos over on her blog!
Ooh Dianne's new Scott tattoo makes a cheeky appearance in one of the photos below!
