Yes, the Olympic Torch passed thru’ our small little town. . and although i had no plans to go see it..  i was glad i didn’t missed it.  At 2.30pm a week ago, ppl were lining up on Main Street .. our store wasn’t too far away.. a 5 mins walk to the town hall.

Everyone was excited.. and anticipating.. this historical moment.  The streets were packed with young and old alike, all hoping to get a glimpse of the world’s most famous flame.   The torch was taken through its closest approach to Shelburne County with a visit to Yarmouth, Bear River and Annapolis on Thursday, before heading back to Halifax and then to PEI and later this week to New Brunswick.

The streets were packed.. and as you can see the Royal Bank Of Canada must be one of the main sponsors here.  We came too late.. for the pom-poms and rattles that they handed out to the by-standers.

They had a change of hands.. at the town hall .. but because i had chloe with me.. i didn’t wanna drag her up and down the streets.. and just stayed put for better pictures alongside the road.

    It is very thrilling that Winter Olympics will take place in Vancouver, B.C. I think it is in February 2010. It is about 5 to 6 hours drive from our city. We might plan to go up there for a weekend of fun activities! :)
