ABC Wednesday: eXcitement!

Today's post for ABC Wednesday is X for "eXcitement!" Well, yes - I know that's sort of cheating, but there weren't many Xylophones to see in Ashton this week!

The eXcitement in question was from the large crowds that gathered in Ashton to see the Olympic Torch Relay pass through. In the centre of the photo you can see the young lady who was carrying the torch for this stage as she runs along Market Street. She then ran around the Market Hall to the point where she passed the flame on to the next bearer, in front of the Town Hall.

There was a better photo of the torch bearer in Monday's blog post, but this image gives a better impression of eXcitement of the crowd as they witnessed this spectacle.

After the torch passed through, many of the people lining the streets moved onto the Market Ground, where entertainment was being provided.

See Google Street View of this location.

  2. It IS an eXciting time as I remember only 2 years ago, the Olympic torch came through my little village south of Vancouver. The crowds were large and there was lots of cheering!

  3. How very eXciting! Missing the build up over here in Canada but looking forward to some good tv coverage. My husband got to carry the torch two years ago for the winter olympics, as it came through Calgary!

  4. I imagine it was exciting for sure
