So today, my hubby, son and I were up at the crack of dawn to watch the Olympic Torch relay that goes by not too far from where we live…
…it was an amazing experience, such a great atmosphere and a once in a lifetime experience! Well, almost, as we’re just off into town to watch the relay continue!
And here’s a video of the torch bearer carrying the flame across the lake
Here are[some of] my photos from today. The rest, as always, can be found on my Flickr.
So serene at 6:45ish this morning over the lake

Nothing Is Set In Stone…

Everyone was patriotic this morning :)

Just after the changeover
Later in the day, the torch moved into our town center, so we headed there to continue to watch the relay!
My son, what a cool dude♥

The mascots have really grown on me!
