Whew, thought we would never get away!
Finally met my Niece July’s friend Dana who is doing 7 of the 8 legs and is on Visit Seattle!
Talking with Tom (Telemed Sponsor Rep) and whipping (making doughnuts) with Ryan.
So the beginning of the race is a big ceremony with entertainment, teams entering a podium with their song playing. And ours is “THE Best Day of My Life” by American Authors.
So for entertainment, drummers in the spreaders!
And check out our drummer!
A bit of their performance once I get set up on YouTube!
Our team nervously waiting for our turn to go.
On the podium after getting to tell the Audience what I did to get in shape for the race.
Interesting watching the boats leave in the tiny space.
And now an empty area until we return on July 30, 2016!
The parade on the Thames has begun!
And there are people lined up along the water’s edge watching this happy parade!
Under the Tower Bridge!
A bit of Unique architecture along the way.
What a Parade!
Last time through. Oh, we did journey up to London Bridge and then we turned around to head down the Thames. And London Bridge did not fall down even if the song said it did. It is still standing.
Spectator boats lined the shores also carrying family, friends and just people wondering what was going on! Great to be able to wave to friends that I have met along the way as they wished us safe journey!!
Passing Greenwich and getting a close fix on our navstation.
So tomorrow we will FINALLY hear about the first leg.
