I was so lucky to get to stay with locals Charlotte and Adrian for several days in Whistler. They have an amazing home and they are so welcoming. We had so much fun playing in and around Whistler.
Paddling and Golf Ball Retrieval
Charlotte and Adrian live close to Green Lake so we headed out early one morning to go exploring around the nearby ghost town and also to do some golf ball retrieval. I had no idea how much fun that would be!!! It’s like guilt free fishing…plus we got almost 100 balls for Charlotte and Adrian to reuse so it’s good for the environment too. I see a new hobby in the making ;).
Exploring Lost Lake
There are tons of great trails for running and biking around Whistler (check out River Runs Thru It trail) and Lost Lake has no shortage. We spent some time biking around there and I spent some time enjoying some relaxation at the beautiful Lost Lake.
We also spent some time exploring the farmers market and found lots of tasty gems :).
Whistler always seems to have something fun going on. We enjoyed live music over dinner, live music at the Olympic Plaza and some other fun events like Dock Dogs – which was pretty funny to watch. Some of the dogs definitely did NOT want to be a Dock Dog :).
We made some tasty meals with our finds from the farmers market but we also had some great meals including sushi, Creekbread and on my way through Pemberton I stopped at the fantastic new Solfeggio Foods.
What a treat. If you’re in Whistler, you should definitely check out this neat spa. I snuck in for a massage and to enjoy the hot/cold tubs. It was quiet and relaxing. You could easily whittle away several hours here :).
