Nice early start this morning as the Olympic Torch
was passing through Ilminster at 6.57am this morning.
as you can see there was a great turn out.
This is our good friend John Madge enjoying the moment.
This was one of the many support busses.
and this bus was a cracker, a real blast from the past.
This is the message of the flame
I realy like that
and my mind started thinking "Emm - Bowl logo ?
a local road sign to Barrington Court.
and there it goes, the Flame.
another support bus with a map of the tour.
we were lucky to be in a position that saw the flame come back up the road
this time with another lucky torch barer.
This shot gives you a sense of the atmosphere that was just great.
I love the Olympics
I was in Trafalgar Square 7 years ago
when the annoucement was made that London had won the bid.
it was great!
and now here we are watching the flame go past us in Somerset.
