...another river spectacle. September is the month for Thames-based events. We've already had the start of the round-the-world-race, a tall ships festival, and a visit from another tall ship from Colombia to mark their national day. Today, a flotilla procession was to mark the Queen's record reign.
And, in the event, this was a very small procession: the replica royal rowing barge donated for the Diamond Jubilee, the Port of London Authority's Havengore and a modern and a historic fire vessel making a bit more of a splash.
But they all had to swerve to give pride of place to the refuse barges muscling through on their way down-river.
Well, the Queen wanted 'business as usual' today and refuse barges moving down-river is presumably essential business.ReplyDelete
