Canada Games have begun

Today was the first day of the Canada Games.  I'm not really into sports much, but hubby and I decided to venture across the harbor to see what was happening.   I'm glad we did, it was such a nice day and the fresh air was great.  We arrived in time to watch the men's 500m speed skating competition.  They used the new outdoor oval that was built just for the games.

 Nova Scotia athletes

Quebec & Saskatchewan

  Saskatchewan - funky outfit

 British Columbia

It was fun watching these young men race at fast speeds around the oval .  I enjoyed all the various colored outfits too.  Some of them looked like alien suits lol.
