And so another month draws to a close. Hard to believe that I’m into week seven already; seems like hardly any time at all. This week was, like the last one, spent mostly working but I did venture out on Saturday to take in the last of the Olympics atmosphere (until the Paralympics start at least). It wasn’t actually as crowded as it has been, though that may have more to do with the torrential rain we’ve had the last few days. The weather didn’t dampen anybody’s spirits, however, and you always knew when Canada had won a medal as cheers would go up, no matter where you might be.
One of the things I had wanted to make sure I saw was the Olympic cauldron and as you can see below, mission accomplished. Surprisingly it wasn’t as packed as I had imagined it to be. There was no line up as such though there was a steady stream of people heading in the same direction. There was a small line to the viewing platform, which I decided not to join, as there were perfectly good gaps and clear plastic areas for taking photos and I didn’t think lining up to see something I already had perfectly good pics of was worth it.
I also went to Robson Square and saw the Olympics mascots skating *g*
And then I wandered around, taking pics of anything that took my fancy:
After Sunday things are supposed to calm down a bit, and then we have the Paralympics, so it will be interesting to judge the difference between the two. Till next time!
