Something a little different from me today! This is a big wheel from London, where it was used as part of the Olympic celebrations. It will be based in Princess Gardens until the end of October. We went to Torquay to visit 'Living Coasts', a last day out before my grandson has to go back to school. We really enjoyed the trip (though we couldn't persuade Albyn onto it, so he stayed firmly on the ground with his Aunty D).

The weather forecast was for mist, murk, fog, cloud etc., etc., as you can see the sky was blue and the sun shone down - it was glorious down there!
