Celebrating QEII



Yesterday was the big flotilla up the Thames to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee.  I was so excited!  Then the craptastic television coverage kind of dampened my excitement.  But between BBC America and CNN, I guess I got my fill of the flotilla.

In case you missed it, here are some pics of the flotilla...




The Queen looked so pleased despite the terrible weather.  She stood up for the whole thing!

Everyone was in good form and happy to be participating in a once-in-a-lifetime-event.
More celebrations are set for today and tomorrow, but poor Prince Phillip has been hospitalized today with bladder infection and will miss out on the rest of the festivities.

My celebration yesterday wasn't a huge to-do, but I celebrated nonetheless! 

Lunch

Dessert

Pimm's Cup for afternoon refreshment

I've hit up the vault (well, photo albums, but vault sounds better), and located some photos of my "close" encounters with the royals.  Stay tuned for those pics tomorrow...
