The Olympic Torch Relay hits its Target

I woke up last Thursday at 5:30 to get picked up and driven out to Port Moody City Hall. It was still dark when we jumped into a pickup with Serge who had been on the road with the torch all the way across Canada keeping the fleet of vehicles going. The energy of the people in the streets was amazing.
Serge wrote a great blog post about the trip with him. The torch made me remember what it was like to be a kid. To believe in something that can unify and excite us all. They were up before the sun and it was wet and cold but they were smiling.
I quickly got over to Willingdon Avenue in Burnaby outside BCIT to tak pics of the torch relay from the street. Thousands of people took to the street to greet the flame as it ran past BCIT. Check out this for more.
It's all about the children and they loved the whole event. In these next few photos elementary school kids stood in a long line to touch a torch after the relay ran by them. Luckily we had a few torch bearers on hand to ensure that everyone got to touch the magic.

 The last stop for me on my Torch Relay day was to see my cousin carry the torch past her school.
You can see all 200 of the photos I took of the torch relay February 11th on Flickr.
