Not a sail in sight, but 1000 boats spectacular on River Thames

'The Gloriana leads the manpowered craft towards Westminster Bridge during Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee Pageant on the River Thames in London June 3, 2012.'    .

There was not a sail in sight, but even so, the River Thames in London was a spectacular sight on Sunday with an extravaganza of steam boats, tugs, speed boats and historic vessels as part of festivities for Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee.

The Queen joined the armada of 1,000 boats in a gilded royal barge as revelers braved the rainy weather to help celebrate the occasion by waving flags, popping bottles of champagne and cheering.
