posted in: Blog | 0

On August 11th we attended the modern pentathlon games here in London’s Olympics. They were held at the Greenwich area and included the equestrian jumping. It was so exciting with the crowds roaring their encouragement to all riders. The feeling of joy and ¬†camaraderie was everywhere. We sailed up the Themes river from London to get to the venue passing a huge aircraft carrier which was standing guard on the city and Olympics. Everything went off well with the closing ceremonies ending a very successful Olympics for the UK. Canada did not do as well but did not expect to as winter Olympics where we shine. the pictures include the view from Greenwich which overlooks Canary warf and the Canada Tower(the tall pointed building), the aircraft carrier with a marine on duty and finally Tower Bridge with those wonderful Olympic circles. Next will be the para Olympics!
