Three Day Summary
Sorry for the delay in posting, it has been a crazy time in Vancouver. Frankly we have been to busy and to tired to post any blogs. To wrap up the past three days we have decided to post all our happenings at one time!
Day 7 at the Olympics
Our day started by attempting to get into the Aboriginal Pavilion but giving up as soon as we found out at the wait was over an hour. Instead we headed to the ‘We Rock’ Olympic Art exhibit at the YMCA on Beatty Street. Ken Wesman was comissioned to paint 7 works at the 1988 Olympic Games in Calgary and has been doing Olympic art ever since. The paintings were colorful and terffically captured the Games. He already has a great painting completed that captures these Games that is already available in prints and was just completing his Alexander Bilodeau work when we arrived. There was no line and it is definitely worth stopping by.
Next we met a friend for drinks at Lux on Granville before heading to a Tweetup event (a gathering of people created through Twitter) at the Caprice. The gathering was organized to watch Canada play Switzerland in Men’s hockey. We were sorry to leave after two periods with the score tied! However, we were on our way to BC Place to see the Victory Ceremonies. We didn’t want to miss this one as our country was receiving a Gold and Silver medal. The band Hedley was the post ceremony act!
