The Queen St Mall hosted the Olympians from Greece today in a ticker tape parade. We had just had a work farewall gathering for Donna at the Pancake Manor and emerged to find large crowds gathering as the olympians came closer on their utes with the bales of hay.
So, rather than battle the crowds, we joined them and watched the procession. People clapped, but I preferred to shove my phone in their face and stare intently at the phone trying to take a picture. I think that is why I got some strange looks from them. Out of the 20 or so that I took, only one was worth anything, so for your viewing pleasure I give you Jodie Henry.
Although the only Olympic stuff I watched was the Matildas and some stuff while changing channels, I still admire the determination they have to reach the top of their sport. Awww.
