The Olympic Torch Comes To Yeovil!

This morning we got up at the crack of dawn and together with what seemed like half the population of Somerset we took the kids to see this once in a lifetime spectacle.

If you look very carefully at the photos (taken by the kids) you can see a lady in white carrying the Olympic Torch in the first photo.  She then touches her lit torch to the unlit torch of the man in white and transfers the flame to him before he runs off holding it aloft. Not something that we will get a chance to see again and we were in just the right place for the official transfer so we got to see the torch up close for about a couple of minutes.  Happy kids after seeing the "Limpet" torch as B calls it!
