Lord Mayor's Show


Sarah marched with the Guides in the Lord Mayor's Show today - I took loads of photos, but I will spare you some of them - perhaps a few more tomorrow... It was hard to catch a glimpse of them actually walking as they go quite fast, but here she is with her friend Katharine. And here are some other fun shots:


This is their float as it was coming along the road towards us.


A pearly King and Queen.



This one was the Phillipines - so was the gentleman below who posed for me...


These folks were from a Samba float - they were less exotically dressed (and more substantially) than many of their colleagues - more photos of that perhaps tomorrow...


At the end, having a well deserved rest.
