It's getting close!

The olympic torch was in town today, there were huge crowds lining the route so although I got a few photographs there are a lot of heads in them!  It was a great atmosphere, lots of cheering and waving, and even police motorbike riders were waving back. It reminded me of the carnival.

Start of the vehicles leading the way.

The side of the Samsung lorry was like a giant television screen, great fun!

These specialised lorries must have cost rather a lot

The flame is here - just about visible over the top of the flag!

That's it! Another 2 seconds and it had gone on its way but I am glad we went to see it.

  1. Excellent! Of course I'm missing out on all this so it's lovely to see how fellow bloggers are experiencing it. I'm glad you went, too.
