Olympic Torch Relay

Yesterday we were lucky enough to welcome The Olympic Torch to our Town where there was a real party atmosphere, 



there were police cars and bikes riding through with lights flashing and sirens going then there were young people giving out "beaters" that you banged together, there were flags and whistles 



and a coca cola van passed handing out little bottles of coke, some lucky people got a silver bottle.


Torch Relay 2012



There were huge cheers as the torch bearer ran past us,


we had a great view from the main road (we live just 2 mins from here) as I think everyone had gathered at the marina where it stopped for lunch before going onto the next Town.

Rachel made her dad a cake in the shape of a "sky" remote for father's say and Joe gave him an i tunes card so that was him a happy bunny 



and I found a lovely book to read

"A Bunch Of Sweet Peas"

based on a true story about a young parish minister who entered a sweet pea competition in 1911 where first prize was £1000!!



the pictures are lovely

Miss Jemima's sweetie shop,



there's nothing nicer than a jug of freshly picked sweet peas.......

The torch doesn't get to us until July 5th but am really looking forward to it and have planned where I'm going to stand.
