What a fantastic weekend of television. We watched the Thames Pageant on Sunday and managed to get these photos of the event. They really give a flavour of the day and also shows how bad the weather became towards the end of the day. A really tough and wonderfull day for all those afloat on the river, made easier by the fact that the Thames Barrier was closed all day and therefore they didn't have to fight the tide as well.
