The Paralympic flame came to my town on Saturday and we had such fun going to see it. There was a flotilla of old boats going down the river and pretty much everyone in the town seemed to turn out.
We had a great time watching and standing near the Local Community Samba Band – who knew we had one? Sadly the flame was so small (not that massive one that was about for the Olympics) that we didn’t realise it had gone past on a rowing boat – doh! But we had fun anyway, it was great seeing all the old boats.
When it was all over, we turned round to walk home and realised there was a massive storm coming in behind us. It was amazing to see it coming towards us but we got absolutely soaked on the way home – not sure my Converse are ever going to be the same again 🙂
