The wonderful sight of around 50 Tall ships going down the Thames was too good an opportunity to miss, but rather than watch them at Greenwich I decided to watch them pass the old Maritime area of Blackwall .
For centuries this stretch of water was famous for its shipbuilding and safe anchorage.
It was also a major demarcation and embarkation point for millions of people.
The Greenwich Festival was the largest fleet of Tall Ships in London for 25 years.
Lets hope its not another 25 years before they return.
