Waiting for the Olympic torch at Tunbridge Wells!

Today It was an exciting day for Tunbridge Wells in Kent. The Olympic torch arrived into town.
Everyone was waiting for it and the children were waiving flags with big smiles on their faces.
Here are a few mementos of the morning.

    Thanks for sharing these photos, Alida! I bet it was awesome getting to see the torch in person. I can't wait until the Olympics start – although sadly I'll be watching from across the ocean on my TV 🙁

    Wonderful photos to show the excitement of this upcoming event. I live close to Vancouver when the 2010 Olympics were being held in the city. My Mom was in the hospital at the time and while she was there a few people came in with a couple of the Olympic torches, just so some patients could hold it. I never really thought to much about this event, but holding the torch was such an amazing experience. The people in your photos really look excited!!!! Very cool!!! :)Wishing you a wonderful time during the Olympics!!!

    It's strange seeing the pictures of Tunbridge Wells, I used to live there in my teens.
