A little late, but better than never !

The Olympic Torch Relay passed through my home town of Bridgend on Saturday 27th May but I was working and could not watch. So my wife and I got up early on Sunday and headed to Burry Port in Carmarthenshire were it was due to pass through at around 10.30am.

We picked our spot along the route and later found out that it was the "change-over point" .... very fortunate indeed. It was a blazingly hot and sunny morning and the runners would be coming out of the sun which led to the images of the "bus'" being blown but I have included them as I feel they add to the story of the morning.

The locals turned out in force and as the young lad who was the torch bearer is from the town the cheering was both loud and vigorous, the sense of community spirit was obvious and very moving. All in all a very enjoyable and memorable day.

All images taken with an E5 and 14-35 SHG . All images are cropped, some quite heavily. Thanks for taking a look,

Simon
