The Olympic spirit is alive and well in Abbotsford!!
The Olympic torch arrived in Abbotsford last night. We managed to catch up to it in the last hour before it entered Rotary Stadium. It passed by on the street, and them we saw it again as it came around the block and was brought down into the stadium by the second to last torchbearer.
Larry and I (waving at the camera) are standing in the background.
Larry carries his own torch:)
The exchange is made, and Gerry Swan, a local sports celebrity, carries the torch on a lap around the track bearing his name.
An estimated 20,000 people were there to greet the flame, and watch the community cauldron being lit.
The entertainment continues. I was happy to see such great local support for the torch relay.
My original blurb is below. This blog was started to show some of our customers where their food is coming from. But...since there aren't actually many of our customers reading it, and just because I wanted to... this blog now is all over the map. Lots of dog stuff, places we go, things we do, and of course gardening and animal stuff, and whatever else I feel like rambling on about.
We live on a 10 acre hobby farm in the Bradner area of Abbotsford, British Columbia. We are vendors at the White Rock Farmer's market, selling a large variety of items. These include jams, jellies and marmalades, sewn items, free range eggs, cut flower bouquets, fresh vegetables, herbs and fruit. We grow organically, although are not certified organic. As of summer 2017, our hobby farm houses 2 humans, 2 dogs, 1 cat, 1 ewe, and 80-99 laying hens.
