what arrived on PEI last Saturday!

The Olympic Torch parade!

It was a grey day but not too cold.

They passed out mini-cokes, mittens and Olympic flags.

We cheered and waved our flags as the torch bearer ran by.

But the biggest thrill of all?

You’ve met Peter before – well, his son Matt, who is also one of Sarah’s close friends, was privileged to be chosen as a torch bearer.

The whole experience was as “up close and personal” as it can be!

But even more Olympic adventures happened later that day . . .

It was a bit awkward, definitely entertaining, and I’m still not quite sure how it happened!

Tune in tomorrow and I’ll tell you the rest of the story!

    Oh what fun! I love up close and personal experiences like these. Looking forward to the other story :0)Dear got to be a torch bearer in the 1984 Olympics. It was a fun experience for our whole family…

    About fifteen years ago the Olympic torch went down our street in San Diego. Funny…I have not a guess where that Olympics took place! There is a map on Weather.com showing where the torch is everyday now. Fun for people to turn out and cheer it on. I hope you didn’t sneeze as the torch went past you…you didn’t blow it out did you? Wouldn’t that make national news?

    I was watching ice skating last weekend, and realized then that the winter Olympics was just around the corner. Looking forward to the story. 🙂


  8. Oh, you are cruel, aren’t you? **grin**I don’t like waiting, but it sounds like a good story. Looking forward to it!
