Celebration!

It is torch day today(Feb 10), everyone who has seen it go by on the street is so excited.  I have put a flag on my front door.

I am planning some international food to take to a friends to watch the opening ceremonies of the Olympics on TV. It is very west coast  meal, so far  with salmon as the main course.  There will be Canadian beer as well for the men.

Lots of flag photos. Lots of people decked out in red, lots of flags, lots of umbrellas. Waiting and getting the ice (plastic) rink ready.

Even the fountain was decked out in a reddish tone.

This lady was having lots of fun.

This plastic rink works quite well and later the 3 and 4 year old skaters took over the rink.

Can you see the torch yet?  There was barely room for the police motorcycles to pass.

The flame is passed on to another torch bearer. The moment we were waiting for has come.  We are ready to party.

    Yeah! That was fun, wasn’t it? We just kept following the torch until we were too tired to walk anymore.
    What a party this will be!

    You got a great photo of the torches, unfortunately I had to miss it as I was in an appointment! Nice to see your photos though!
