Getting near to the end of the iPhone shots;

Approach to tower bridge lifted, we could not go through centre arch.

Royal barge, too close so no pic of HRH just the hat!

Shot from my cousins window in Chelsea.

We were getting a bit cold by now the return to west india was at the end of a long day 65 people were treated for the effects of exposure only one kept in hospital.

The deranged fool who thought it might be good idea to be in pageant (not me!)
Oh, were you the one with a pink hat on the 'A' frame?

Some randoms from the day;

Mooring bollards at West India; comes in black, white and grey (not pictured) there was something quite fullfilling about the shape.

Post Pageant nosh up, we were so late in finishing they kept some back for us. The two ladies taken off our boat by lifeboat warmed up and re-joined us later.

All in all a very good day with just the bit at the end that could have gone more smoothly. I'll get some more pics when we do a share on thu night.

We had a bouy on the A frame used to fend off during lockout but left in place for deck space, somone did mention a rib with a "pink hat" not sure if that was us or not? There was some pretty dodgy seamanship exhibitted by some in our section, clearly not us! Lifeboatmen very efficient, lock operators and Docklands Scout Project were peerless and had the patience of the gods.

Fantastic pics of the event and to actually have been there on the Thames with all the other boats is something you will remember and cherish for the rest of your lives.
