And all I ask is a tall ship

The Tall Ships regatta is happening at nearby Greenwich, starting yesterday, so I thought I'd nip along and have a look. Shouldn't have bothered. The tall ships so far:

I don't think this one counted:

Luckily the good old Cutty Sark was there in her dry dock to add some beauty to the dullness:

There were thousands of people thronging the streets. The streets closed to traffic. The station so overcrowded I walked (or rather limped) to the previous station to get myself home.

I was gone for just over an hour. It seemed like six.

Sorry it was so unpleasant...but the ships are pretty cool though.

I love the Cutty Sark!!! Not so fond of the cruise ship. I think they look awkward.
