The last hurrah

Well what a wonderful day we had yesterday at the victory parade for the Olympic and Paralympic athletes. We got down to Charing Cross Station at about 10.30am and already the crowds had begun to build. However, by the time the parade actually passed us the crowds had grown amazingly. I have been to various similar events but I have got to say I haven't seen this many people before. 

Everyone was really good natured laughing smiling and talking to each other about the athletes they were waiting to see, the events they had been able to get to and what they thought would happen in the future....... you know the legacy we have heard so much about. If nothing else I am hoping we will have a much more positive outlook in the future. We are, after all, Great Britain and we can be great as the last few weeks have shown. 

Here are a few shots we took enjoy.
