Another Winter Olympics...Vancouver 2010 Flashback

As the Olympics continue in Sochi, Russia, I came across a few photos I had from the Vancouver, Canada 2010 Winter Olympics that I thought I'd share for fun. We were visiting our friends in Richmond, just south of Vancouver and New Westminster to the east of Vancouver just before the games and a few months prior. 



This was taken by our friend from Stanley Park, just across the bay from Canada Place. The fuel barge you usually see had been outfitted with the Olympic Rings for the duration of the games in February 2010.



This is foot traffic during the games on Robson Street downtown, leading to the Olympic Plaza. The weather was often nice. This was sent by the friend in Richmond whose daughter lives downtown....



This is the Olympic Cauldron at Coal Harbor, just down from Canada Place during the games...



This is the Olympic Oval speed skating venue in Richmond, about a mile from our friends house. We took this photo a month before the games on a visit....



This photo I took of my husband...in the front...and his best friend Harvey...in the back, on a bobsled used in the Olympics when we visited Harvey in New Westminster in May. We headed up to Whistler, where the ski venues had been and we had visited judt before the games just to see what things looked like. A great few days just knocking around with a dear friend...

Brought bacvk lots of memories, and so glad I came across the photos!

And here's another Olympic piece by Bing & Grondahl, Denmark from Munich 1972 at Antiques And Teacups At Etsy....

  1. Nice to look back and you were able to get some interesting photos from 2010. I always remember during high school a poster on the wall of the Olympics when they were in Tokyo. It showed a man leaping over a hurdle - our gym teacher!
