The Torch

Some friends of ours let us know that the Olympic Torch would be passing right in front of their house on Saturday afternoon & invited us over to watch.  So we headed out to see what there was to see....

We saw the first police car pass the house, so we bundled all the kids up to have this enriching experience....

First came a Coke truck, handing out flags & commemorative bottles of Coke (that were FREEZING cold!).

Asher dutifully waved his flag, but his enthusiasm wavered as the torch was not forthcoming.

Chancery tried looking up the road to see what the hold-up was.

More police cars heralded the arrival of the torch.

We thought the Torch Relay would be more of a run, however it went by at more of a leisurly walk.
The camera crew that accompanied the "runner" (in the loosest of terms) asked "What did you think of seeing the Olympic Torch?"  I'm not really sure how to respond to that.  (I don't think our collective responces would merit a TV clip).  But at least we got a free Coke out of the deal!

  1. We saw the torch here and we just happen to catch it coming off the ferry onto PEI (we made a quick trip over to visit family) as we were going home.
