Yesterday, I booked the day off work to watch the Olympic flame being run past down here in Leigh-on-sea up to our local Olympic venue of Hadleigh Castle were they are running the Mountain Bike events up and down the cliffs around the castle.
High Vis Jackets were de rigeur with the organisers.
The Motor Bike Police were hooting and high fiving the school children.
|Every vantage point was comandeered.|
|The local schools were so well behaved, especially Yr 3 from North Street.|
|My friends, Deborah, Sally and Tracey cheering the runners on.|
|And then came the coach with the next runners, |
if you look in the window you can see the torch holders.
|And here he comes... no, the drizzle has not extinguished the flame.|
|They were running at quite a lick!|
|And there he was gone...|
