Well, it didn't rain as much as we feared, and the HE contingent in the children's parade put on a good show. Here are our finished costumes, and us, ready for the off:
Once we got there, we had to do a lot of waiting. And then wait some more. And a bit more.
At least we got a good view of the rest of the parade passing us by
Finally, we set off, waved to friends and relations along the way, shook hands with the Mayor, and found the welcome sight of a grandmother bearing chocolate in Pavilion Gardens. When we got to the beach it really started to rain, so we packed all our precious things in plastic bags and went home for a nice long rest!
