Event dates 14th and 15th July 2012 Sunday.
Me, my wife and my daughters little part of history in the making. The video was recorded by me at 06.00 on Sunday morning of 15th July.
My wife and I got up early, 04.30 to be exact, to go to town, Guildhall in Southampton, and witness the start of this days Olympic torch relay. On our arrival there were a few people and police but as the hour progressed the crowd grew. Below is a video I took and have also include a few photos of the day.
Below is a slideshow of which three photos are from Sunday morning. Titled as numbered.
1. The clock and arrival time.
2. The Guildhall of Southampton.
3. The torch and bearer on the steps, he is preparing for the first leg of the day.
Did take more photo’s of the morning, but these I felt sum up the show.
On Saturday 14th July 2012 my daughter and I went to Brockenhurst to see the part of the leg of the torch relay which went form Bournemouth to Southampton via Isle of Wight. It was a very wet day and both my daughter and I got soaked twice. And for the varying reasons and pro’s and con’s of this relay travelling the country. Today I witnessed a great deal of patriotism. Also saw people trying to make a quick pound, but overall the adventure was enjoyable, and for me to say that means that others though it was brilliant. My daughter also enjoyed our little adventure.
Also included in the slideshow are 6 other pictures we took on this day (Saturday). The selected few are all good that represent the day well.
