To watch the air show, of course!
The Red Arrows were doing an air show above Hastings for the first time in - if my sources are correct - 25 years, as the grand finale for the olympic celebrations in this area. We wanted to be there to witness it, so we made our way along the seafront, photographing pirates as we went, so as to be on the seafront near Hastings in time for the show.
It was a perfect day for it; the weather was beautiful! And it was an awesome show (even for someone who couldn't see)!
Kero was an angel, and I was so proud of him!
His ears were constantly up and down (down means he's afraid or unsure, up means he's curious or happy) but other than that he was fine. He wasn't trembling, and his tail wasn't tucked under him, so I think he was more unsure than anything. I kept giving him ear rubs and reassuring him the whole time though, just in case.
Anyway, while I was in charge of making sure Kero was doing OK, Kelly was in charge of the camera. So, here are the photos he took:
A couple of times they came so low over where we were that I almost felt I could have reached out and touched them...
Near the end of the show they did the sign for the olympics in the sky...
Then a heart...
I thought afterwards I could have used my phone to get an audio clip to go with the photos, but it was too late by the time I thought about it... We were at home by then and the show was long since over!
I hope you enjoyed the photos though!
