I was thinking that today would be a quiet "catch up at work today" kinda day. Then I got a call from a Vanoc Volunteer saying that he was driving the Rogge family around (if you don't know, Jack Rogge is the head of the IOC) and they didn't know about Grouse but he convinced them to come up. Um, ya we would love to have them.
So Jack himself was not in the group, but his son, daughter, daughter in law and grandchildren were. And since his son Philip is also part of the IOC, well we treated them to a spectacular day on the mountain.
With bluebird skies, I knew this was going to be a shining moment for this family, and I was lucky enough to be the escort for the day. I have have to say, they were such a nice "every day" family - who were so appreciative of the day, and what we were able to do for them.
The Eye of the Wind is about to open for public, but we were more than happy to make this available to them. It's moments like this morning when I say "take the camera to work Kirsten, you never know" that I am glad I listened to myself because - well, I think the photos speak for themselves.
