Today, the Olympic Torch Relay 2012 came through East Grinstead as part of its travels around the country before the Olympic Games start on 27 July.
Doing some people watching :o)
The Mayoress did a little walk about.
Our little group :o) Dad was walking past and stopped to join us in the wait.
Hugh and Max also walked into town and stood with us.
The excitement was growing (and I have to say, all the children were so well behaved)
This chap on jump stilts was brilliant and bounced all over the road
Police riders came next
followed by the torch relay bus
more stilt walkers
and finally, the torch!!
And, because I couldn't finish without some photos showing Alice and Claire, here are a few I took from Claire's facebook page. She and Alice watched the relay as it came in to town (round the corner from where we were) with Claire's friend Rachele.
Love this photo (and Alice xx)
Look at that little smile!
With Aunty Rachele
And as she was such a good girl, she got to eat her gold medal ;o)
This was definitely something that had to be done as we'll probably not see anything like it again in our life time.
