Yesterday I got up at the crack of dawn to see an old flame..
..The Olympic flame
Colchester was spic and span, flags and banners, bunting and brollies. Yes, brollies! It was pouring down.... That didn't spoil the wonderful moment it went past, everyone cheering, flags waving, a youth orchestra playing just behind me, wonderful. If I'd blinked I'd have missed it..
It was so lovely to see so many people in the town, there must have been several thousand in some places 10 deep from the barriers.. Well worth the alarm going off at 6am and waiting in the rain for 40 minutes for a bus... I must be bonkers!
Has anyone else seen the flame?
