The Great River Race 2013 Photos from Putney

There's a tube direct from Tower Hill to Putney Bridge, but Gladys had gone through before I got there (I asked and someone remembered seeing her), veterans that they are.

However got to see the tail end of the Great River Race fleet:
 It was more colourful and generally more relaxed than the serious rowers that went earlier:

 The yoofs, of course, had their iThings and sound systems:
 These two boats I'd seen before at Tower Bridge:

There is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats:
Can't remember why this boat caught my eye:
Of course some were working very hard - such as those brave souls on the oldest powered lifeboat: you can see why it needs an engine!
Well done to all involved!
