Yesterday we watched the pageant on big screen, all those boats on the Thames, the Queen and her family on the biggest barge ever. And the London philharmonic bringing up the rear with Rule Britannia, their unfortunate choir getting soaked in the rain as they sang to the Queen from the top deck of their floating orchestral boat. The Queen looked resplendent in a white coat which was threaded with tiny crystals, and a wonderful creation of a hat, that I thought had slight tones of Tudor, it was also white.
So, it was a wonderful Bank Holiday weekend for David and I here in Crete. We escaped the doom and gloom of the economic crisis for a few hours in the company of friends and relatives. My cousin's son and his girlfriend are over for a short holiday so we are all having fun in the sun.
And next week it will be back to preparing for our event in Agios Nikolaos on the 24th June, The Odd Poets' first airing in public.
I hope you have all had a good Pentecost/Whitsuntide/Jubilee weekend.
Lots of love,
