Two kisses in one day!

Up with the lark to see the kiss in the nearby village of Ilchester.  
Enjoying the atmosphere with friends, neighbours and strangers.

That evening they ate at their favourite restaurant on the Bristol harbourside and saw the torches kiss again.
Their table afforded a ringside view.
The city was in party mood.  
A "drunk on sunshine, olympically hopeful and jubilee celebratory" party.  
They watched.  And enjoyed.
They went on to party with Elvis.
Later they watched the lights on the water from their hotel balcony, listening to the singing and laughter of late night revellers.
Breakfasting in Clifton.
A wander up to the Suspension Bridge and along the Royal York Crescent ...
Reputedly, the longest crescent in Europe. 
They chose their (in their dreams) house ...

What a fabulous visit. Would love to go there. (Though just the picture of the suspension bridge makes me dizzy.)

Sounds like you had a wonderful time! I imagine all of England is excited about the Olympic games. Lunch looks deLish and the view gorgeous. Although, I must admit that I am afraid of heights so this would be a no go for me! HA ~

I'd love to visit Bristol properly, not just dodgy student parties. Love the "in your dreams house" too - I have plenty of those

The atmosphere must have been amazing not to mention the weather!
Just to let you know,if the one in Bristol falls through, there's always the Royal Crescent in Bath...
