It was an early start, the morning of the Olympic torch coming to Harlow, as Harlow was the starting location for the Olympic torch on day 50. Despite being 30 minutes early, there were crowds of people along the whole length of the journey around Harlow's town centre. We were lucky to avoid any rain, not that rain would have dampened the spirit of Harlow! There was a small delay in the torch arriving at Harlow. I stood near the start of the torch's journey through Harlow, this was strategic as I had enough time to get to the end of the torch's journey, so I could take more photos. Even though I was alone most of the day I enjoyed myself, there was music at the watergardens and in the Harvey Centre. Since the Olympics, I have noticed more people cycling around Harlow and an increase of promotion of cycle tracks, which I hope will last for years to come.
Some more of my pictures are also on the ITV Anglia website under the heading ''Day 50 - Olympic torch relay''

I went to London after my birthday, mainly to see the sights of London. Despite it's bad reputation at times, I really like London, there is a lot you can do for free such as visit museums and visit various gardens. I visited the Palace of Westminster and the London eye (didn't go on it, scared of heights) which I have seen several times. I also went to London Aquarium, I went there 5 or 6 years ago, a lot has changed, my favourite part was seeing the penguins. A new experience for me was visiting Kensington Gardens, it is a beautiful area where you can relax away from the rush of the London Underground. I really enjoyed myself, it was a dry, sometimes cloudy day, I was thankful it didn't rain. I took a lot of photos on that day (over 200). I have put a few on here, if you have added me on facebook, you are likely to have seen them already as some of them are on there.
