I had an early morning shift at Cypress today; leaving the house at 6:00 a.m. to catch the bus. It was dark as I walked to the bus stop but as I was walking a car pulled up beside me and rolled down the window. At home I may have been a little nervous in this situation but I had a feeling it must be a fellow volunteer (they call us volunteers "smurfs" because of our blue jackets.) and sure enough it was a blue jacketed volunteer & she offered me a ride to catch the bus to Cypress, which eliminated me taking 2 more buses. The local volunteers have been great in giving rides to us out of "towners". Above is a picture of all the smurfs arriving for their early morning shift.
I enjoyed my shift today the most of any yet. I think that was because I could sit all shift! I was welcoming and directing the spectators before they entered the security area. I was sitting in one of those elevated chairs; like you see on the beach that the lifeguards use! I loved it. It was sunny and warm so it was great. I am working on my tan. I got some photos of some of the enthusiastic fans also.
I just found out that my shift for tomorrow is cancelled so I am very HAPPY... I will venture out down town probably. The weather here is suppose to be sunny and 10 degrees for the next 3 days so I need to take advantage of it. I would like to try and get to Granville Island. I'll let you know what happens.
Take care, keep the comments coming. That is the first thing I look at!
