Canada Here We Come !

Bob has been wanting to go skiing at Whistler, BC. Last night one of his daughter's offered us their Trendwest points, as they are not going to be able to travel this year and if the points aren't used they loose them. So we now have confirmation of a Trendwest condo unit at Whistler for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights. I'm not sure if we'll leave Monday & stay somewhere else Monday night or just make the drive up there Tuesday~if we do that, it will be a long day of driving. We'll be staying in the Cascade Lodge. Here's a couple pictures of the place.

I'm so excited. I haven't been in Vancouver in years and have never been to Whistler which is about 110 miles north east of Vancouver. I'll be taking my laptop but am not sure of Internet availability so you may not hear from me this next week. However, I have a few entries scheduled to post in the next week....so you'll get those. (Guido~thank you so much for telling me about scheduling entries!)

So today I've been busy gathering clothes, food, etc. for the week. These time share condos are completely furnished with everything you need to live but you do have to bring your own groceries. Gabi is going to go stay with my grand daughter and my neighbor is going to pick up my mail. We'll be back late Friday night...hope everyone has a good week. Linda

I wanna go with you!! That looks just awesome! Make sure you tell us all about it and take bunches of pictures.

P.S. I made a soup you posted on a Friday, just a bunch of cans with barely and broth, and it was DELICIOUS!! I froze some and we're still eating soup :-)

The closest I came to Vancouver, was at the airport when flying en route to Oregon, and was in Vancouver Island this summer. The Lodge looks really lovely. I was watching skiing on tv, from Whistler on the weekend, some of the slopes are awesome. Have a wonderful, safe trip and take lots of pics. Take care.

I was just telling Sonny that's about time we head back up to Whistler - it's been a few years for us.

There are a couple of waterfalls just off the road between Vancouver and Whistler be sure to check them out if you can.

Have Fun!

Hi Linda, Have a great time up in my country. I personally have not been to Whistler..but years ago daughter (ski racer) and her Dad went there and had so much fun.
I would love to be able to take in the Olympics in 10 but forgot that.
Still trying to get hubby better. Dr. ordered some tests today to make sure about things.

Love and hugs.

Lori
