and a closer one to see the rings.....
Saturday, 21 July 2012
The Tyne Bridge in Newcastle currently has some Olympic rings suspended on it! The rings span 25 metres across the bridge and are the largest set of Olympics rings in the country! There are many sets of rings across the UK and I first saw the ones on Tower Bridge on television when they were unveiled. Mark then said there were some in Newcastle too. His cousin (and Courtney's God-Father) lived over there so we were hoping to visit whilst on holiday in Thirsk next week. Unfortunately that wasn't to be as we knew Philip was poorly and sadly he passed away, we ended up going to Newcastle to attend his funeral on Friday.
