Today the paralympic flame came to Ely, our hometown. So we went down to the river to watch it arrive in style. We couldn’t see the river through the crowd :), but we did end up right by the gentleman that received the flame and watched him carry it through the crowd. It was an interesting time. The children were very excited. A lot of hype has happened about the “torch”. Turned out this was just the flame (which was quite disappointing to T). We did get to see the big storm moving in though, and that was beautiful in its own way.
