Jubilee Pageant 3

2012.06.05

If you look back earlier in the day the top of the Shard was mostly visible - but now the cloud is right down and the top is hidden! But the boats were still coming
pixel
the charge of the narrow boats!

This is one of the inflatables that do trips - I can think of more hospitable ways to go down the river!
PS I think that is a portable toilet strapped on the back .......
pixel
and now the Thames Clippers - impressive!
pixel
tourist boats - all packed with people who had paid £££'s to be part of this great day
pixel
says it all!
pixel
The Silver Sturgeon - largest tourist boat on the Thames (I think) - certainly the nicest
pixel
and in contrast - the Duck tour boats - old WWII amphibious trucks
pixel

and then the end - with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra - all in tails! Playing British Music and ending with Land of Hope and Glory as they passed the Royal party

Back at the Cockpit for a well earned warming wine ,,,,,,
pixel
some people never braved the crowds - they just watched the tele - and drank..... It was a merry crowd !!!
pixel
And the rain - it just kept on raining
And the boats kept on sailing by!

It was a magical occasion - I got absolutely drenched - but I am so glad I went

lexlevans Cool! What an awesome thing to witness firsthand. Sorry the day was gloomy :( Those WWII amphibious trucks look like they are about to sink! I watched some of the jubilee on the television here in the States but only a little bit of the last day.
