Just had to do a layout about today. We only decided to go and watch the relay after seeing the coverage on the news of the torch arriving in England. It had to be a quick decision as this is only the second day of the relay!!!!
The girls actually enjoyed all the excitement and I even met some old friends too. Of course the rather scrummy ice cream probably helped.
It did become a bit frustrating when everyone started crowding into the road to get a view of the procession. We were rather lucky because we actually saw the flame being handed over between two runners.
The atmosphere was brilliant and at the end of the day it is a bit of history!!
Anyone else planning to go - I would recommend it if you can.
