Whistler, Here We Come


Off to Whistler tomorrow.

It’s a long trek from coast to coast.  Two flights plus a two hour car ride and we’ll arrive after 12 hours of travel.

*Ugh*

Although it is business that takes us there, one cannot NOT ski when at Whistler.  The Professor is very excited since he has always wanted to ski Whistler.  I, on the other hand, have memories of a past boss who skied Whistler and came back with a broken leg.

So ....  The Professor and I have very different types of eagerness for this trip.

Whistler is beautiful.  We have been there before but only in the summer.

My type of weather.

Our son, the skier/photographer, has advised us to use some crampons to walk about since it can be pretty icy.

More snow and ice.

*More ugh*

And it is going to be in the 60’s at home this weekend.

Figures.

I’ll keep you posted with my little Canon.

Have a great day,

I have no idea where Whistler is. Maybe I should? I dunno.

If you are not a skier, then there probably is no reason to know of Whistler. It is up in British Columbia, about 2 hours north of Vancouver. This is a fine example of a writer doing a POOR job in communicating! Thanks Michael!
