Flying the Rainbow Flag

We had a wonderful day at Cornwall Pride.  After torrential rain early morning, the sun came out just in time for the Parade.  I go along every year to support the LBGT community in Cornwall as well as all those across the world who still suffer persecution.  It is a fabulous family fun day enjoyed by all.

The huge flag was carried through the city by many willing hands, and when caught by the wind it billowed up nearly taking yours truly with it!!

We all made our way to the park for picnics and music.  It was a lovely atmosphere, and one brave lady had her long hair shaved off for charity raising over £3.000.  I could have cried for her as it came off.

I'll be leaving the party this evening to the youngsters.

Thank you for the comments yesterday, I feel a lot better today it's just a cold so ok for the op :)
