How crowded is your neighborhood today?

This afternoon I took Miles for a walk. On our normal route we saw tons of people. I’m not watching any Olympic events today since I’m working, at least trying to, but I still can’t get away from the event. I have to admit, even though I not joining the masses to watch Volleyball, which is the event they are heading to, it is fun to still be a part of it. So far Miles is tolerating the crowds. We’ll see how he does in a couple of weeks. Now I need to get back to work. Take care!

    I can’t imagine the crowds you are encountering. But hey – a great opportunity to people watch.

      The crowds have been entertaining. I’m enjoying that almost everyone has been so pleasant to talk to. And it is fun to see people from all over the world supporting their players.

    Oh wow. It must be so exciting to be in London during the Olympics.

    The vibe must be something else! Enjoy! 🙂

  4. For the Olympics I would tolerate the crowds no problem, but generally I don’t care for crowds and traffic jams. That’s why I love living in the country!!

    Hey, is that blue sky I see on those pictures and people in tshirts and shorts?? Yayyyy!!

      Don’t worry, the rain has returned today. When I woke up I was cold–feels more like an autumn day. I’m getting used to crowds. I think Boston helped prepare me for London crowds, which are so much larger and always present.

  5. Wow! Good location for the games, not so good for walking! Would love to be this close though 🙂

  6. I can’t even imagine. Just looking at the pics makes me want to lock myself in the house and not come out til it’s quiet again! 🙂

    It’s pretty quiet around here! Looks like everyone is over there. 🙂

      It is fun to see all of the people. We walked there later in the evening and it was still pretty crowded. I love the Olympic spirit!

    What a great time to be in London! I remember Montreal during it’s World’s Fair in 1967 – a glorious summer to be a Montrealer. Enjoy!

    I can imagine how crowded it must be. It’s way cool to have the Olympics occur so close to where you live. During the 2000 Olympics in Salt Lake City, I was living back east, but flew out to SLC to visit family. I could not believe how crowded it was downtown compared to how it was before the Olympics. In my experience, it did not reach typical big city crowds, but it was certainly waaaay above normal for here (I’m back in the SLC area now).

      Enjoy Salt Lake. I used to spend my summers there when I was a kid. My grandparents lived there and we’d visit and then head to Yellowstone for a week or two. I have many fond memories from my childhood summers.
