The Olympic Flame!!!! It is one of the Most Awesome of all Olympic Flames!!!!
On the Sky Train, heading to downtown!!! When we were here in Vancouver 4 years ago, Vancouver was busy building alot of this infrastructure, and this sky train was part of that!!!
Here we are at the Flame, they had this area secured off by a fence, I really do not understand this part, as normally you can walk right up to the flame, must have been a security issue.
See the girl sitting on the platform, she is known as part of the BLUE SHIRTS, they were Everywhere!!!!! And so very helpful, they could direct you anywhere you needed to go and literally there were thousands of them everywhere!!!
It was like this all over town, like walking in New York City. You could feel the excitement in the air where ever you walked and everyone was so polite and kind.
Here is my sister and I outside of Canada Place, this is Vancouver's Iconic building on Burrard Inlet, it is here where many board or disembark on a cruise or come for a convention.
Here is Holy Rosary Cathedral in downtown Vancouver.
Walking into the old Gastown district!!!
The famous Steam clock in the Gastown district!!!
On the hour, it plays a song for you!!!
In a local jewelry store was a bobsled and a torch from the torch relay. It was so cool to get to hold it, it was kind of heavy so I can't imagine running 1/4 mile holding that, of course given that honor, you would be running full of adrenaline!!!
My sister Carolyn and her husband David!!!
I saw this beautiful tree in Vancouver and had to get a pic of those beautiful pink flowers!!!
We rode the Sea bus over to North Vancouver in search of those famous red mittens, we found No red mittens over here, but did come across this really cute Italian restaurant.
I loved all the chandeliers and the food was so good.
Canada Place in the background, recognize those famous white sails????
From North Vancouver's side!!!
Those famous Olympic Rings out in the Water, when Canada would win gold it lit up Gold, other times it was just red or the colors of the original 5 colors of the rings!!!
