Tall ships

Following the crowds to Greenwich on Sunday to see the tall ships ... only to find that it was the smaller ships at Greenwich and the taller ones at Woolwich, downriver.
 Crowds of people everywhere, though, and helpful signage -
A jam-packed riverside -
On the way outta here, we heard a few sea chanties being sung and watched a sail being unfurled on the Cutty Sark (it made me dizzy to even think of being up there - and just imagine doing it at sea, with wind and weather, the boat pitching and roiling) -
Getting past the platforms looks a bit tricky -
The Parade of Sail as the boats leave is Tuesday, 1-4pm.

That last photo of the rigging is so perfect. So glad I'm not up there in the ropes.
