The Olympic torch will be making it's way through Cornwall tomorrow, lots of events planned, so let's hope for decent weather!

We are going to see it in Newquay, thanks for that link, I have been searching for the actual times but not managed to find them! Yes, I think we are all hoping for good weather, I'd be happy if it were just a little warmer.

Fun!!! I saw the Winter Olympic torch in our town in 2010...it was incredible to think of the connection between that and Ancient Greece...a couple of thousand years ago...

Hope your weather is kind to you!

Just watched the One Show on BBC1 and saw the Olympic flame touch down at RNAS Culdrose.

Becks was on good form - he called it RAF Culdrose and said he was looking forward to the English Olympic Games. D'oh! ;-p

Weather looks good for tomorrow - Olympic Gold medal winning yachtsman Ben Ainslie will be the first to carry the Olympic torch when the relay starts tomorrow at Lands End.

Enjoy. ;-)

Some people are just inherently Eeyorish, I guess ...

Some of my family went to see it as it passed through the outskirts of Bodmin but said they found it a distinctly underwhelming experience. They were also sure that the flame was out as the 'white' runner passed them.

I enjoyed it, but I must say the whole "torch" bit was quite underwhelming. It was just lovely to see the community (and lots of other communities as well) gathered together for the event.
