Under 3 weeks to go, and the excitement is beginning to mount!And yesterday, the Olympic Torch arrived in Chelmsford, which must mean it’s time for a party!!!
Ok, ok, so it wasn’t me that ran with it… but nice to get up close, and the kids loved it of course. They even had a go at making their own torches:
A cauldron was lit, speeches were made, and then we concentrated on having some fun with the locals. And wow! there were some characters about! Great for a bit of street photography.
This was the day that it poured a whole month’s worth of rain in 24 hours. But the sun shone in the evening. Squelchy underfoot, but who cares?
And lots to do and to marvel at.
A classic British event where fun was had by all. Bring on the Games, we can’t wait! (just stop raining….)
