Back in the car and we headed off toward Whistler - absolutely breathtaking scenery on the way, green lush forrest on one side and beautiful scenic sounds on the other pretty spectacular, Stopped along the way to look at a waterfall of course as we got out of the car it started to rain again. Then continued on our way and arrived in Whistler about 3pm which apparently is too late in the day to actually do anything. Andrea and Garry had hoped to do the gondola up the mountain (not for me) but due to the misty rain cloud and the lateness of the day wasn't a happening thing.
Wandered about the village which is very quaint and new and shiny and then found a nice little pub place for lunch. After a bit more of a wander decided to see if the Holiday Inn we were walking past was at all affordable, most hotels here being very expensive resort prices! Stephen checked it out and found tho not cheap it wasn't going to mean we needed a further mortgage on the house so we decided to stay. Our room was lovely with a bedroom and lounge and very flash, Andrea and Garry's room was nice also but on first glance did not contain a bed, which we thought hilarious we eventually found the bed in the pull down cupboard - still hilarious!
Andrea and I went and had a swim in the lovely pool area which had a nice long lap pool and two hot tubs then decided to catch up on the laundry, it was at this point I worked out that we weren't actually staying at the holiday inn but the hotel behind it the Pan Pacific, Stephen had gone into the wrong lobby
Went for a wander round the town to find somewhere for tea, very Queenstown vibe with everyone being on holiday mode, lots of young people particularly those interested in mountain biking and outdoors stuff as there is heaps of options in the area. Went into Buffalo Bills intending to have dinner as we went in we noticed a sign which spelt land yacht, as land yact, Andrea told them they had forgotten the h, we had a drink decided to go elsewhere for food as their options were limited, checked the sign....cracked up laughing, land yact was now land yahct....gave them yet another heads up re their spelling ability and left them googling the correct spelling!
Decided in the end to have tea at the 'Old Spaghetti Factory' our waitress was new only on her second shift she will regret serving us, as Stephen made things as difficult as possible for her,tho we did all laugh when we realised she wasn't saying super salad, but soup or salad!
Home to bed late again!
