Olympics – the opening ceremony

We went down to the beach and watched it on the big screen outside the Metropole. I really enjoyed most of it – it was quaint, anarchistic, enthusiastic, non-centralised Britain, expressed monumentally. Bold and funny. Quite a different sort of big statement, when compared with the usual Olympic opening ceremonies.

We went for a drive in the country today, and stumbled into countryside gay cruising grounds as we tried to find a place to sit down for a bit. A local gentleman suggested it may be more peaceful elsewhere, and directed us to a place with a lily pond to sit by. Which we duly did.

Jamie and I had supper later, up on Devil’s Dyke. We finished off with a wonderfully messy Eton mess. Yum.
