41 Day 122 – The Queen’s 60th Jubilee

As you may have seen in the press (well certainly those of you who live here in the UK) today is the first day of the Jubilee celebrations to mark the 60th anniversary of the Queens reign. So, feeling patriotic I went out to see if I could capture just a small bite sized piece of the celebrations and share them here with you. The weather as always for a bank holiday has turned quite dismal and so there is no shining sun or blue sky, but I think that the amount of red, white and blue in the images more than makes up for it! I visited a small village a mile from where I live and found plenty of party spirit! Everything from Union Jacks flying in the breeze, windows decked out with pictures and souvenirs to a bridal shop (Jane Barker Bridal Gowns) which has a stunning window display dedicated to the Queen complete with a stunning one off original bridal gown trimmed with images of the Queen’s reign and a giant replica crown! (Jane is in the photo herself!) The street parties begin Sunday and Monday with roads closing and people enjoying the atmosphere….sharing a glass with neighbours and friends alike….looks like the British spirit is alive and well and proud to be cheering on The Queen 60 years after she ascedended to the throne….congratulations Your Majesty!
