Weekend Update

Our weekend in Whistler was very nice. We got to eat some amazing food at two wonderful restaurants, ate (well, tried to eat) the biggest half plate of nachos ever, drank one of the best margaritas so far and had a superb breakfast on Sunday. We also got to sleep in, hang out in the hotel's Jacuzzis and pool, drink champagne and just hang out together. It could have been more romantic had we not spent the most part of Saturday shopping, but overall it was a great time. We managed to score some great deals on outdoors stuff, like on "tuques", jackets and snowboarding pants and other stuff like cap and tees. The only thing though was that the weather was not all that great, as it was windy and raining a lot of the time. It's too bad because of all of the warm weather we've been having, there was no snow in and around Whistler, except on the ski trails, and even those were surrounded by grass.


We left Whistler early on Sunday, and decided to go check out the Brandywine Falls which are located between Whistler and Squamish. David had not seen the falls before, so it was a first for him. At 70 meters tall, they're bound to impress! I also remembered that there was a hiking trail in the park so we had set up to do that as well even if we were not dressed for the occasion. The sign said that it was 3.5 km to the Cal-Cheak Suspension Bridge but it seemed to be much longer than that. The trail was unmarked except for a few ribbons tied to the trees, and the trail was wet and rocky. There were some pretty lakes along the way, and a lot of moss everywhere, but the bridge was not worth the hike. We came back following the railway track because we figured that it would be much faster that way. Not only was it faster, but it was also about half the km as well. In all, we did about a 5.6 km hike.

Overall I'm quite happy about our anniversary getaway weekend. I'm a bit disappointed in myself for letting other people's idea of the weekend become mine as well, leading me to believe that a proposal was possible, but that's not a big deal. I knew that it was not going to happen, and it didn't. Maybe our 6 year anniversary will be the charm! We'll be in Australia then, somewhere along the Gold Coast / Queensland. If that's not romantic enough, I don't know what will ever be!
