Olympic Torch

How exciting, what a great thing to be part of. The Olympic Torch passed a few metres away from our house this evening. We picked Adam up from work, and the 4 of us went and waited with great anticipation with everyone else lining the streets.





Here it comes...





It's not the best picture, but it's the moment when the torches kissed, passing from one person in the relay to another.



We all waved our Union Jacks like crazy, the atmosphere was brilliant and Imogen said it was one of the best days ever, not bad from a 10 year old! It felt quite emotional, and I'm so glad we saw it.

Take care
