It's hard to believe, but we're done!
The 2011 Canada Games Closing Ceremony wrapped things up in style on Sunday afternoon, marking the end of a virtually flawless event.
Athletes from all 13 provinces and territories filled the Metro Centre with cheers as they celebrated their accomplishments, spilling out of their seats to rush the stage as Radio Radio rocked the house.
As this year's winners of both the Centennial Cup and the Jack Pelech Award, team Nova Scotia did us proud -- as did all the athletes who made Nova Scotia their home over the past two weeks.
Nova Scotia loves company, and it was our pleasure to host the athletes, their coaches and families throughout the games.
And it's been my pleasure to write this blog about the people and places that make Nova Scotia one of the best places on earth to live.
I'll sign off with a special farewell from Nova Scotia's own Rankin Family.
