Games Baton Relay

Well, the Commonwealth Games are almost upon us and as we are so close to the Gold Coast, we’ve had a lot to endure (and more to come). Today the Queens Baton Relay came through Tamborine Mountain. I ventured out for this event, and guess (maybe?) it was worth the walk from my house and a wait of about an hour. The day was extremely pleasant, about 23 degrees up here, with few clouds and a gentle breeze, plus not too many people and I was able to stand in the shade of a lovely tree, and took lots of photos without concern! Heaps of police, emergency service people, volunteers for the Games etc…..almost as many as onlookers!…Just kidding, but it wasn’t crowded. The kids had a good time, and there’s lots of activities heading into the night. I don’t think I’ll bother with that though. Here’s some pics of the baton and it’s bearer…everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.
