Tall Ships Regatta and Festival Greenwich/London

Standard

As you may have seen on “my beautiful things” blog the tall ships regatta started in Falmouth and sailed to Greenwich.

The Royal Borough of Greenwich is celebrating the largest fleet of Tall Ships to visit London in 25 years.

The start of the Festival was yesterday evening with music and fireworks.

The grounds of the historic old Royal Naval College was transformed into a huge aquarium filled with giant illuminated fish in a stunning underwater spectacle performed by a street theatre company.

As it was night, the pictures didn’t come out so well, but the atmosphere and ships I saw were amazing.

After the fireworks many ships passed us, including the Mercedes!

Here are the pictures….. (I might go tonight again for more fireworks…. and tall ships…. and pirates!)

… and I met Jack Sparrow….

The fireworks were even better with my favourite music of Two Steps from Hell! I was in heaven!

A super evening out!

    • It wasn’t Johnny Depp, but he looked so much alike, and acted like it. He was a charmer too 🙂 I went yesterday further along the river, saw more ships and more fireworks. London did do a great job with organizing this festival. I do love those tall ships, specially when all sails are up!

Love to hear from you......
