Photo of the Day: Light Up the Sky

I was watching the Opening Ceremonies at home last night. What an overwhelming and moving show! It made me SO proud to be a Canadian and a Vancouverite. If you were watching, you'll know that after the team of famous athletes lit the caudlron inside BC Place, Wayne Gretsky was transported on a pickup truck through the pouring rain with the Olympic Flame to light the outdoor cauldron at the waterfront in Coal Harbour. I'm hoping to get a photo of the lit cauldron at some point in the coming week.

After the outdoor cauldron was lit, fireworks erupted. I was watching on TV and then realized that from my view, if the angle was just right, I just might be able to see some of the fireworks. For a moment, I got to be a part of the celebration that in the 3 hours before I was witnessing vicariously through my television.

A small piece of the magic...

How cool that you could see the fireworks from your apartment! You got to be a part of history and the Olympics, which is very cool.

So cool! I used to have a condo in Chicago with an awesome roof deck. If you stood in just the right spot and looked between the skyscrapers in the downtown skyline, you could see fireworks over Lake Michigan. It's always so much fun to watch fireworks from the comfort of your home!

That is super cool that you could see the fireworks from where you live. Vancouver must be all aglow with Olympic festivities right now. Enjoy!
