1) 18 Seconds of GLORY Video:
It is only an EIGHTEEN SECOND RIDE but they had line ups of 6 to 7 hours!
Was it worth it? Many say YES! Click the video below to see for yourself! (2 min video) created for Granville Magazine.
“550 feet of glory” as they say…
Hope you like my “Pumping Starfish”
2) OLYMPIC SPECTACLE!:
Whether you were a supporter or detractor of the “big show” that settled into Vancouver, there certainly was no question it was BIG! While many were absorbed with the games themselves (with a record setting medal count for Canada it is no wonder!), I took special interest in the spectacle and events around the games. There were so many things to do with venues and “houses” all over the city. Russia turned our Science World into “Russia Dome” , the Swiss converted Bridges Restaurant to “Swiss House” (with free chocolates) and there were tons of places to visit – with musicians from all over. What a hoot!
Below is a SLIDE SHOW of some of the images from this 17 day event.
3) IMPOSSIBLE ACCOMMODATION:
After missing the train back from Whistler we needed to find a place to sleep for the night in the “hardest place in North America to get accommodation”… this was considered impossible! Not only did we pull it off, it was FREE!
