Oh what a day.....it started at 5.45am as the whole of Beaumaris and Anglesey started to prepare for the Olympic torch coming through the town. I was more than a little excited as it left the castle at 7am and went straight past the gallery a minute later. We then ran down to the seafront and had booked a pod on the wheel which is in town for a fortnight and watched the torch head down the Menai straits on the lifeboat. It was such an amazing atmosphere made all the more exciting by the addition of HRH the duchess of Cambridge being present, on a boat!!!!! Rumours had been spreading like wildfire all week that she would be here, as she lives just up the road.
The atmosphere was just amazing especially as the sun was shining from 6am and by 8am it was all over. A gang of us were sitting in our garden with coffee and croissants in the sun. we then spent a fun few hours in the town paddling pool and on the beach, little R is definitely a water baby.
I have splurged on a new computer today so will be uploading some more photos tonight to show you the wondrous sights from the ground and up on the wheel, if you look closely you might see her on a boat.... I will also be announcing the 2 lucky readers to my giveaway....see you later folks x
three days in a row we have been in this paddling pool, who needs a holiday abroad?????
