It arrived early evening.......and the mixture of sun and sea mist gave it quite an eerie feel.
The torch was proceeded by a whole convoy of police and Olympic sponsors.It traveled the entire 4 mile length of our main sea road.
I'm not much of a sports fan.......and I'm sure I'll be fed up of all the TV and news coverage long before the Olympics is over.....but seeing the torch is a once in a lifetime deal.....not to be missed.
We chose to watch on the quieter part of the journey because G knows the torch bearer.......once it got to the main part of town it would have been much busier.....with more of a carnival feel.But we had a perfect view where we were.....there would have been no chance of that further down the route.
And then it was gone.......it isn't actually leaving town til tomorrow morning......I just hope it doesn't take the sun with it!!!!
