Olympic Torch Handoff in Dorchester, England

We spent a couple of days chasing down the Olympic torch in the south of England, barely missing it once in the port city of Weymouth and again in the itty-bitty hamlet of Puddletown. Our Spaceship finally caught up with the torch on Dorchester’s High Street, where we withstood the midsummer’s bitter rain alongside a hoard of jolly Brits who were only too glad to get we if it meant catching a glimpse of Olympic glory. The spot we’d chosen to hunker down at was within a few serendipitous yards of the actual torch hand-off.
