We are heading down to Vineland after worship at Tintern today to see the Olympic Torch go through town. It is on a 45, 000 km route (yes that is correct) across Canada. Now I am no Geography major but I am pretty sure that Canada is only 5 000 km wide at best. As I recall a trip around the globe would take 50 000 km so either Canada go a lot bigger or the Canadian Government was involved in the planning the torch route. Not the most direct route I think.
Rumour has it that Ms. A, a teacher at Great Lakes is going to be a torch runner this year. Here is an artist conception of what that would be like (if she loses the glasses and shows a bit more gray that I think is likely). The job comes with a cool pair of pyjamas; nice touch! Hopefully they will not have the flame on this high when she carries it. (Use a scrunchie just in case!)
Pictures from our Day in Vineland will follow.
We had a great day. Check here for our photo Album:
