I stood mesmerized, right before the coat that Nelso was shot in. You can see the bullet hole, at the left shoulder. I kept walking away, and then circling back, finding myself in front of it again.

Even as they called out that the museum was closing in 15 minutes, and then 5 minutes, I hovered near Lord Nelson's coat. As I finally left, I wondered: do the guards see one of me every day at closing?
