Olympic Torch

Gosh! I never thought I would experience this...the Olympic Torch Relay coming to Bolton just before the london Olympics in 2012.
I watched the torches live on the tv feed as it made it's way from Lands End and now at last it has arrived here. The torch was due to arrive in Bolton Town Centre, but the roads leading to the town were mostly blocked, so we went to the bottom of Junction Road at Wigan Road as the flame made it's way from Westhoughton. The atmosphere was was fantastic and it was also a changover point for the torches. Steve Watson was getting ready to receive the flame.

Melissa was also here and she watched very excited!
This is a once in a life experience even for someone like Melissa...amazing!
