Here's some of the photos hubby took:
One of me when we first arrived, sitting down having a rest after our walk.
Note the handmade flags!
Some of the people waiting
A group of scouts
More onlookers plus wedding guests waiting for the bride who was caught up in the road closure
Two of the many police who were part of the entourage
The Olympic mascot - anyone know what it's called (or even what it's meant to be!)?
Another of the very many vehicles in the parade
And finally the runner with the flame
I've never added a video to my blog so fingers crossed this works! It's only a short video of the runner going past me. There was supposed to have been a 21 year old girl carrying the flame but this lady looks older than that so I don't know who she is.
If you turn the sound on you'll be able to here me shouting 'Go! Go! Go! LOL!
I hope you all enjoyed it as much I did and if you're not able to get to see the torch for real I hope the above has helped you to feel part of the occasion.
Finally - hello to the people who've become followers of my blog whilst I've not been posting, hopefully I'll be blogging more regularly now.
