What a wonderful weekend of celebrations, I hope everyone had a great time despite the weather not being at it's best! However it wasn't bad conditions for running. Our son was running in his first half marathon in Plymouth at the weekend and we went to see him in action.
He had injured some ligaments in his ankle some time ago, and then hurt his knee recently so he hadn't been able to put in as much training as he wished, but he managed to run the 13 miles (21km) in 1 hour 55 minutes and was a great way to end his 4 years study at Plymouth university.
We managed to have a jubliee picnic to celebrate both events!
On Monday evening there were fireworks in Weymouth to commemorate the Jubliee.
A beacon was lit above the fort unfortunately as it was in a fire basket the fire and picture weren't very good.
From our vantage point you could also see two more beacons in the distance, part of the 4,200 which were lit throughout the world.
