Today it was the turn of Godalming (my home town) to have the Olympic Torch Relay.
What an amazing afternoon, the town was absolutely packed full and the weather was fantastic, we got there a bit late and finding somewhere to stand with a good view was not easy.
I knew it would be busy so opted to leave Badger Boo at home, it really wasn't really the place for a small dog and all those feet, I did see an awful lot of dogs there, but was happy we had made the right decision.
We just kept walking along the route until we finally found a spot that was a little thinner and took up residence for the duration, but more people were arriving all the the time.
I have no idea were they could have all parked, we rode our bikes down, as although there is a lot of car parks in Godalming I didn't want to be walking for miles to get back to the High Street.
There was quite a procession of liveried vehicles, sorry I've not included those pictures as it's not my job to advertise their products.
The atmosphere was amazing everyone was so excited, and many flags were being waved and people had their own torches too.
The torch bearer we saw was Roger Black, the noise of cheering as he went past was deafening.
I'm so glad we went to experience the magic of the event as we bumped into people we hadn't seen in years.
