An architectural detail at Rivendell. It is a really nice building. I'd recommend the place to anyone who wants to rest, read, and meditate for a few days.

Before we left we checked out Killarney Lake. I'd like to return in the summer, when it's not raining!

There's a large labyrinth for meditation, but the path is a bit tricky to follow since it's made up of irregular stones. Or maybe I just got impatient as I tried it.

And she was interested in this slime mould. She has to buy this stuff for her biology class to examine.

There are lots of places to walk and enjoy the woods. It was raining lightly most of the time we were there, but that was all right.

During Spring break, Ros and I spent a couple of days at Rivendell, a retreat centre on Bowen Island. It overlooks Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver and the new road to Squamish.

Finnegann with his horsey, a gift from Bettina Gruver. He really likes it. The toy comes from Germany and was played with by Bettina's children, now in their 20s.

One of the many, many posters and banners in the city during the Olympics. These on a bridge. They created a festive air.

Here is many of the media tent's volunteers. At the desk in the centre was the person in charge of the operation. A friendly group. What we're doing here is having a glass of beer of wine after the men's gold medal game (that Canada won; the women took silver).

Here's where I worked during the Olympics, in the media tent at the curling venue. Occasionally I would get to see the curling. There were up to about 30 journalists working out of here. I tried to be useful... but mostly made sure only accredited people were in the media section, and handed out some pages of statistics.
