The Weekend Picture No.12

Waiting for the Olympic Road Racers 
Olympic fever is sweeping this household.We watched the torch procession when it came to Surrey, the lovely wife and I stayed up until 1am to see the conclusion of the Opening Ceremony and we braved the rain and the wind on Box Hill this morning and afternoon to watch the Women's Road Race.



The weather may have been whimsical, we may have got up at 6.30 am (ON A SUNDAY MORNING) to see the cyclists for approximately 10 minutes of action and we may well have risked our lives slipping down the mud caked hill after the event to find our car.

But, we loved it.

It was exciting, it was well organised, everybody was very friendly and Britain got their first medal.

What more could you ask for?
