Today was the last day for the Olympic Torch Relay, and it's coming to Vancouver. Tomorrow, the torch will be lit during the opening ceremony!!!
We've been following the torch on the interactive map online, and today, mum decided to take me to see the torch live!
I waited patiently for the arrival of the torch,
Everybody was ready for it to come, see all the maple leaf flags?
Where is the torch already!!
A few people complimented on how patient I was, what a good dog I was, because, well, I'm PERFECT!
Police cars started showing up,
Mum said that meant the torch was not far behind!!
Watch it come by! Listen to the chant of the hooman pups!
The torch relay continued around the corner into Vancouver General Hospital,
They stopped outside the Hooman pup's Hospital (mum: Children's Hospital) so the sick hooman pups could see the torch too,
Well I hope they saw it, because I certainly didn't! (mum: if you look left of the girl wearing purple, you can sort of see the flames flickering)
There were soooo many people...
After a little break, mum and I headed to the stop point for this stretch of the relay.
I again, waited patiently,
In the pouring rain, in case you haven't noticed.....
Finally, men in yellow uniforms aka. Vancouve Police were coming our way,
They rode past us....
And then, I think I see it!!
Oh its in front of me.... except the guy in black sweats was covering up the torchbearer
Sorry, I have no idea who the torchbearer was....
But it was still quite exciting to see the flame go by!
This was the last stop for this stretch of the relay.
The flame would be put out, and the torchbearers would hop in the 2010 vehicle and head to the next relay starting point.
STINKY has more footage of the torch relay and the entourage that came before the torch on his blog in case you were interested.
