An Olympic Day

View of Greenwich from the north side of the river with the spectator stands in the background.

I love the Olympics! I don't want it to end!
Yesterday was a brilliant day. We have been trying to get tickets constantly since they were first released, but have been unsuccessful every time. Until Friday night when we managed to but two for the showjumping at Greenwich Park the following day. Yes!
To get the arena, we went to the Isle of Dog and crossed the Thames under water using the Greenwich Foot Tunnel. Very handy. The setting is truly amazing. Right on the river in picturesque Greenwich with the Cutty Sark a stone's throw away. The weather was lovely, the crowd was fantastic and the horses and riders were incredible. So happy that we got to experience an Olympic event first hand, and particularly thrilled to get to visit Greenwich Park which could be the coolest sporting arena ever, I think.
The afternoon was spent on the sofa watching team GB bring home one gold medal after the other. A wonderful end to an Olympic day.
