Road Trip! London 2012 Olympic Beach Volleyball at Horseguards

On The Mall for the 2012 Olympics in London
I wasn't expecting to be as excited as I was when I got off the 501 National Express coach and arrived at the London 2012 Olympics, you know, from off the BBC, but it was really hard not to get swept up into the feel good spirit. So many smiling friendly people, all happy to be in London. The army personnel that came in to work security were pleasant and reasonable. The volunteers were helpful and informed. The setting was thoughful and inventive. The sport skilled and inspiring.

We went on Saturday 28 July and were lucky enough to see the beach volleyball with number one ranked Brazilian Womens team, the Team GB mens and a pair from the 11 strong delegation form Mauritius. Sun, sand, the sound of Big Ben? What more could you ask for?
