Diamond jubilee pageant

A packed out battersea park made it near impossible to see the Thames pageant today, but we still managed to take part in the festivities nonetheless. Even the downpour of rain didn’t stop the fun!

Everybody was trying to get to higher ground to see the Thames, it was impossible to see the 1000 boat flotilla from the park as the people were 10 deep! They had huge screens in the park to see the pageant though. So close, but yet so far!

Just near the Thames, we walked for ages to try and find a spot. No such luck! This crowd were on a small mound, beyond that were thousands of other people. Over a million in total along the Thames.

A nice water feature in Battersea park. I used a slow shutter app to get the water effect.
