Hard to beat a ride on a harley but back to reality.
I had a shift from 11:00 to 5:30 today at the women's aerials. Today was just qualifications; no medal event today. The qualifications started at 10:00 a.m. so when I started my shift the qualifications were over and the crowds were leaving. Luck was on my side as I was let go at 2 p.m. as there wasn't much to do! No complaints from me! (the picture of the aerial - look for the little red spot-that is an athlete!) The athlete in blue is a Swedish athlete. The water view from the barricade is from the trip up to Cypress.
I decided since it was so nice out that I would go out and explore a bit when I got home. I've been told there is a pretty little cove close to Rebecca and Scott's house. I hopped on the bus and found "Deep Cove" ; a very scenic, pretty cove. (pictures above) There were cute little shops around so I loved it.
When I got home Scott and Rebecca were having an open house. This couple is amazing and it is nothing for them to entertain 20 plus people at the drop of a hat. That was just today. Tomorrow they are doing the same thing! I said to Rebecca "are you nuts" and her reply was "well I only have to clean the house once and the left over food from today will feed the crowd tomorrow! I wish I was so relaxed in entertaining! They always encourage me to be part of their parties and their friends are very nice.
Tomorrow I will meet Lynda (my job sharing partner) and her husband Mitch down town. We will probably just walk around and soak up the spirit because there are several hour waits for most attractions. Pre Olympics Lynda suggested we consider the free down town zip line... well it is pretty popular..the wait time is now 8 hours! I think we'll just watch considering they only have 2 days to tour around!
Hope all is well, love all your comments, take care...
