The Anonymous Widower

Inside The Olympic Park

I walked across from the ViewTube to Eastfield.

As the pictures show, there seems to have been a comprehensive upgrading of the site. All it needs now is to finish the Olympic Stadium.

My one doubt is the price of going up the Orbit. Remember that there is a good viewing gallery in John Lewis at Eastfield.

It certainly looks better now, than the site where the Athens Olympics of 2004 took place.

When it is complete with a fully refurbished Olympic stadium, it will be a unique attraction for London.

In some ways for me it could become a special place, as so much of my early years had connections with London’s second river, the Lee.  I used to fish in it, I worked alongside it, I drunk by My youngest son, even lived close to it in Bow.

 

London’s second river has at last found its purpose in life. It’s just a pity that C and our youngest son aren’t here to see it.
