Visit to The Olympic Park

I have been so angry and disappointed with myself that I had no interest in the Oympics before the games started and was without any tickets.  As soon as the opening ceremony ended I was engrossed, watching anything from volleyball to horse jumping to screaming at the tv for Mo.   Lukes work colleague gave him two Olympic park tickets for last Saturday, so I at least wanted to walk around the place while the Paralympic was still on.

I had absolutely no idea these chaps were standing behind me until I was checking the photos and they were walking away.  One of those golden moments.

I wasn’t purposely on the lookout, but I wasn’t one to turn down being sandwiched between two men in uniform while my husband looked on and happily took photos.

It was such a great atmosphere there and wish I had seen more, but hey ho, its too late now.  Maybe I will learn not to be so blase about things in future.

    The army guys and the police are the best ones. Great that you managed to at least be there at the park.
