Thames Barge Parade by Tower Bridge

There's something very right about seeing a Thames Sailing Barge on the river that is its natural home.

As part of Totally Thames a mini fleet of them assembled downriver and then passed under Tower Bridge, which was raised in their honour.

They then assembled for a parade in the traditional Pool of London, and were rather a magnificent sight (above).

Then sails were raised (or tugs deployed) to turn their noses round and head back down river under Tower Bridge again:
On the way they passed by the Customs House, which was to be my next destination as it was London's Open House weekend in addition to Totally Thames.....
