Ok so I know it’s not book related, but I’m allowed to have a random post every now and again. 🙂 Today the Olympic Torch came towards where I live, so I decided I wanted to see it. You’ve got to be patriotic once in a while right? And it’s real history in the making, happening today, and I got to be a part of it! Who knows, I may not ever get to see it again.
I took a load of pictures, some of which you can see below. They aren’t especially arty or scenic, and some of them are a bit blurry because it was difficult to get shots with all the people. But it proves I was out there, supporting the United Kingdom! 🙂
After seeing the first Torchbearer we quickly cut through to another section of the town to wait for the torch to come back round.
And thus ends day 60 of the Olympic Flame Torch Relay. For those that are interested you can watch the relay live at this website as it makes it’s journey across the UK. The video runs whenever the relay is active.
Are any of you getting into the Olympic spirit? Have you seen any of the torches? And will you be watching London 2012?
