Olympic flame (7th July)

Did the flame get a whiff of port today? I guess it travelled very close to some significant stocks at some point today!

The map suggested (but I didn't read the route details) that it went near Saffron Waldon!

It actually passed within 30 yards of some significant port stock...with Jamie Oliver holding it...I should have got a photograph as the Newport fire engine was also positioned 30 yards away...just in case :lol:

Next Friday (19th and also day two of the Oval test unfortunately) it passes within about 500 yards of me. Still not sure if I would rather see the test match or the flame. The weather may make my decision!
