The Olympic Torch Relay

At 8am this morning, the Olympic Torch Relay passed through my neighbourhood. In fact a hand-off between relayers happened right where we stood.

Here's a photo of the next runner waiting his turn before his torch is lit. You can see the Canadian Olympic logo on the torch.

He talked to the crowd and a few photos were snapped with enthusiastic fans.

Everyone showed their Olympic spirit.

Finally, the procession nears.

Here's the runner.


Then it was all over and my cold family headed home.
