Tall ships on the Thames

Recommended link here.

Tuesday was the last day to see the ships taking part in the Tall Ships Festival in Royal Greenwich. We managed to get to Woolwich just in time to see the final parade of sail and here are some pictures of what the Thames looked like that day.
Crowds gathered to say goodbye to the ships.                      

We didn't catch a glimpse of Dar Mlodziezy, which is a famous Polish ship, but we had a good look at the JR Tolkien from the Netherlands and a few other ships.
Maybe next year we will book a cruise during the festival.

Watching the parade was fine but I was way more interested in berries and pebbles as you can see. Each to their own. :-)
