Waiting for the torch to arrive at Skipton 24 June 2012

Round the roundabout and back down the High Street
And then he went. Over in a flash.

Here are some of the activities that were taking place in the High Street at 2-3pm, two hours earlier..

 Well I had been lucky to have a good position to watch the torch.- I had seen two friends and waited with them for 1 and a quarter hours, up on the grass of Skipton Church. A long stand. but worth it. The early bird?
Here is an early bird I saw catching a worm on the grass of Skipton Church ten minutes later. There - swallowed and gone. I wonder if it wriggled inside.

And here are some scenic shots I took afterwards, first in a display on the senses at the church, then at Skipton, then the flooded Ribble near Settle
