I wasn't going to bother with this today but it turned out that me and Dad went to see the Olympic flame passing through our part of the midlands ;p We went to Much Wenlock and it was a really nice street party atmosphere with the sunshine and packed streets, but everyone got a place and waited & cheered at the entourage, it was fun! Much Wenlock is also the town where the games were re-started so it was a good place to be! (Also I'll probably never see the town with this many people again!)
On our way back home we decided to watch it again, and went to the Town Centre where it was passing through. The atmos here wasn't so good, it was a lot busier and people were vying for good space, but I did get to see the flame passed over from one torch to another which was cool :]

This is very cool! Wouldve liked to have been there. There are so many people on the streets in Telford and all with little flags! Who knew so many people cared XD I can't see the flame in the 3rd pic though, what happened there haha

i know, it was weird, & the town was ghosty! The flame is in the 3rd pic, but it flattens as they're running with it so it is hard to see XD

Do you remember seeing the Olympic Flame going past our motor home when we were in Childs, Austrailia

Much Wenlock is my home town! It was a really great day, and I'm so glad that I got to experience it - looks like you had a great time too :)
