After breakfast, we walked down to visit the Royal Yacht Britannia. After decommissioning, a private group took charge of the vessel and has turned it into a very fine museum. A wonderful audio guide helped us wind our way through the decks where we saw everything from the bridge to the Queen’s bedroom. Little stuffed Corgi dogs (Queen Elizabeth favors this breed of dog) abounded in the various poses in many of the rooms including the sick bay where the little creature was bandaged!.
