Trip Report: Whistler, Finally, This Summer

Usually, I go to Whistler three times a summer, this year it was supposed to be twice, but other commitments kept me from the first visit.

Finally, WHISTLER!

My friend Michael from Tokyo is joining me and arrived a couple of days early, so off to The Museum of Flight we go!

Trying to decide if I like the selfie more, or the one the docent took.

On the night before, we have an “amuse-bouche” stop at The Camlin, downtown Seattle. Amuse-bouche meaning a frivolous tasty nibble of a stop.

The studio plus off the courtyard…

And the Cloud Room where we took takeout Poké and opened a split of Champagne:

Owner update meeting at 8:30, out the door by 10am checkout with 30,000 Wyndham Rewards Points!

Border was blessedly short – with our Canadian Border Guard saying goodbye in Japanese to Michael as we pulled away. So civilized.

Several hours of driving (and a little shopping) we arrived at WorldMark Cascade Lodge:

And Whistler Village itself:

Michael was out exploring one afternoon and came across The Original Wailers doing a sound check for a later show…

Too soon, we were back in the car headed back to Seattle. Good fun, good food, good friends.

Sigh, too short.
