It was my birthday yesterday.
I booked a couple nights in Whistler to celebrate.
Everything went wrong.
So wrong. It was frightening just how many things were messed up.
I didn’t research it...and nothing was open.
I missed my first night. (Long story)
The next morning, the elevator didn’t work for the time. (See?)
In Whistler there was no gondola and no suspension bridge. They were Closed!
So, I thought, I’ll take the helicopter ride over the mountains. Nope! They only take 2 or more people. (What?) And When I asked the Concierge about hikes, he said he wouldn’t recommend this lake or that trail because of bears.
He suggested I go shop at Lululemon. Shopping was the very last thing I wanted to do! (It bothers me that the town isn’t much more than outdoor mall.)
So I explore a little, but there’s really little to do. And worse, no pictures to be taken!
I go back to my suite and turn the TV on. I detest TV, and because I don’t have cable, the shows and the commercials are especially unbearable.
I read my book.
I want to be home. I’ve booked the bus home Saturday at 4. *now my luck changes*
My friend Joe is here, and going back to Vancouver at 6:30 and he’ll take me home in his Tesla. (Mucho good luck!)
This photo is the road home.
We talked, had a bite in Squamish, and everyone lived happily ever after.
I’ll never forget this birthday and I might even laugh about it one day.
