Couldn't resist popping into town with my camera at lunch time on Thursday when at last there was a sunny day to capture the colourful flags celebrating at the olympics. I was bemused at first when they started to take down the Jubilee flags almost straight after the event, but was relieved when they replaced them with these colourful gems. Winchester was one of the cities with a big screen so I think they must have got a bumper allocation of flags that they used to good effect!
New course on blogging started today 'reflection of you behind the scenes' I wonder how I will be blogging differnetly by the end of it? Inspired by my look at Xanthe Berkley's blog I am making this entry more of a photo journal so stand by for lots of pictures!
We arrived at Borough High Street around 11.30 for an early lunch and look round the market before going on to a matinee at the National Theatre.
Walking from the car park to the market we passed the Chooclate Factory - now an arts venue
Next we came upon a row of 'Boris Bikes' enlivened by attendent graffitti!
then we entered a tunnel full of coloured lights
When we arrived at the market we could see it was ready for London 2012
Time for lunch at the fabulous Brindisa tapas bar and wholesale importer of Spanish goodies, just delicious!
Then just time for a quick look around the market, glowing with colour as usual
and where I wasn't the only one taking photos
Then it was time to get back to pick up the car via this corner where the opposing lines attracted me.
