I know I've written several times about London 2012 but I hope you'll forgive me this one more time because today we've been to the Olympic Stadium to watch the Paralympic track and field events and I just wanted to share this with you. What a day that was, absolutely brilliant. Apart from the fact that it must have been the hottest, sunniest day for weeks, the events and the athletes themselves exceeded everything we expected.
We left home at 6.45am and arrived at the Park just after 8am
It was such a thrill to actually be on the site after walking around the perimeter several
times over the last six months
And to see the Olympic flame gave me goose-pimples
All of the events were spectacular and as we were in row 17 had marvellous views of them all. Just high enough to be able to see the whole arena in comfort, especially these Javelin throwers.
and the runners
After our session we joined the other hundreds in the sunshine
for a spot of lunch
I think I was so excited about getting to the park first thing that I failed to see the hundreds of wild flowers that had been sown along the banks of the walkway and spotted on our way back to the station.
So proud to be British
Thanks for stopping by. See you soon.
