Celebrating the Sports Stars

The Olympics and Paralympics may be over, but the sporting stars are still being celebrated all around the country.

On Sunday, Aberdeen's gold medal winners - Katherine Grainger, Neil Fachie and Tim Baillie - plus several more athletes and a swarm of local torchbearers and volunteers were cheered through the city, from gold postbox to gold postbox to gold postbox.

Steve and a friend and I headed down to the Castlegate to watch the parade set off.

  2. They all had such lovely big smiles!

  3. OMG that little red-headed girl is so freaking adorable!

  4. Isn't she the cutest?! I don't normally use pictures of other people's kids but I just loved this shot so much.

  5. Great pics but I have to ask.. why Twiggy over the street?

  6. There was an over 60s (or maybe 50s?) festival on at the time; she was the face of it.


Please play nice.
