Vancouver, Day 4

Started the day with a buffet brekfast. Met the most hilarious omelette making man ever. Not that I’ve met others to compare him to….

I had planned to take the day off work but Yvette had something urgent come up so we ended up working most of the day. 

Later in the arvo we took a break to go out on the jet ski! I had to sign 4 pages worth of legality to have it for just an hour! It cost $140 but was well worth it – I loved every minute of it! The speed was capped at 90kmph so obviously reaching that was my first feat. 

We flew around the lake taking in the sights of the Canadian landscape. It was stunning and all fun and games until we got out to the middle of the lake and the wind picked up. It was crazy, like being out on an angry ocean. We were getting sprayed by water in every direction and slapping down after each wave. We could barely go fast at all. Once we made it back towards the coast the waves went down a little and we were able to fly across the low once again! 

We worked again for a bit then walked around the lake and had sushi for dinner. I really wanted a beautiful trout or fish from the lake but surprisingly nobody had them. Sushi was average. 

We watched the sunset and spent time in the hot pools for the rest of the evening. 


Vancouver, Day 3

I was up early and ready for Yvette to pick me up for our road trip to Harisson Hot Springs except, Yvette, true to character was late. 

We went by a Farmers Market so I could investigate for work then Yvette’s so she could pack while I made a caprese salad then we hit the road! 

Yvette’s car is a convertible so with the wind in our hair we caught up and sang the 2 hours there. 

Check in was ridiculous even at 12pm for ‘pre check in’ at Harrison Hot Springs Resort. We waited about half an hour and because I was hangry and I knew Carso was waiting to have lunch with us, it wasn’t particully pleasant. Surely the hotel can predict when they need additional help at the front desk? I’m a customer service nazi. 

Finally I went to find Carso and we did a slow mo run into each other’s arms as we haven’t seen each other since I left. She had her friend, Ezza staying with her and we walked off in search of lunch.

We stopped at a German joint which was pretty average. Our waiter was… I actually don’t know what he was. Slow? Priorly occupied? In a constant day dream? Unaware of everything? 

It was great to catch up with everyone though and enjoy some sangria! 

Back at the hotel we could finally get up to our room. We changed, went for a swim in the natural hot springs, and got ready for dinner with some sunset pics on the balcony thrown in for good measure. 

Dinner was ‘included’ as part of our girls weekend away package. We had a fresh seafood platter with halibut, salmon, scallops and risotto. 

Dinner was wonderful, not because of the bottle of wine I drank but because of the live band to which all the older guests danced to. I love the way they dance, they were all very sweet and intimate. Inspired me to take more dance lessons – watch this space. 

Bear selfies on the way home! 

Ps. You might notice the smog, this is due to all the BC fires this year.
