The weather might have been dreadful, but there was no stopping the Olympic Torch relay and the awesome Olympic celebrations in Bowness this evening! More “Olympic Torch in Bowness-on-Windermere!”
We haven’t been on a hot rock bolt clipping holiday for ages, so when we heard Elsie was planning on going to Geyikbayiri near Antalya, Turkey, with her friend Koon we decided to crash their party. More “Kizlar nerede?”
I’m working at Lloyds Banking Group at the moment, and as they are sponsors of next year’s Olympics they had the Olympic torch on display in the office last week. Thought I’d join in the fun and have my photo taken.
Apparently, there isn’t one torch, there’s one flame. This is one of 9 gold plated torches, but next year there will be a couple of thousand.
The 8000 drilled holes represent the 8000 torch bearers. Hopefully we’ll get to see the torch when it comes to Bowness next year.
