Me, Dad and Clem, scouting out the best place to stand. With my little flag.
We saw soooo many people! They're all behind us.
Clem explores some new viewing platforms
Mum and Uncle came to join in the excitement.
People lined there streets - the atmosphere was intense and amazing!
The cyclist that leads the way. Followed by lots of sponsors. And then...
Look, there it comes!
Everyone's soooo excited!
My best shot of the torch and it's bearer that came right past my house!
Bye bye torch! I don't think I'll see you again in my lifetime!
Viewing platforms which were even higher than Clem's!
The buses were super delayed because of this - doesn't this look like a super long bus?
I had a super exciting time! Look at my face! Hahahaha.
This was an amazing experience. Considering what the weather was like yesterday, I didn't even think I'd get to see the torch without holding an umbrella! It worked out very well though, and we had a burst of sun just as the torch and its bearer came through my own town. There were sooo many people, and for the second time this month (read about the first time here) I have welled with pride to be part of my community. It feels nice to be part of something historical like this. I hope blogs will stick around so I can look back and say, yep, I was there. Olympic Torch Relay 2012. Hoorah for the local community, hoorah for the Olympics, and hoorah for the Torch! Woooo! :)
