We got the bus up to Nanaimo to catch the ferry over to Horseshoe Bay which is on the mainland somewhere between Vancouver and Whistler, and then took the sea to sky highway along the coast and then through the mountains to get to Whistler. It was another exceedingly beautiful day, and we saw our first Bear!! YAY!
We were so excited, it was a Black Bear eating on the side of the road and it stayed there for a while before walking back into the forest. The highlight of the day though was taking the chair lifts up Whistler-Blackcomb – it was just breathtakingly gorgeous and we felt like the luckiest people in the world to be here today. To top it off our room is superb with views over the mountains and it’s been another perfect day in Canada. Our photos are here.
