off the boat and on to Whistler

While some may have been content to walk around taking in the scenery around Whistler and/or enjoying a sleeve of beer on the balcony while bird watching, I got a little adventurous. It must have been that big breakfast we had with our nephew Chris in Vancouver after we “debarked”. Between debarking and deplaning, I just don’t know any more.Rob - Whistler Mtn - 28 Sept 2014Whistler Village from the mountainYou can’t see properly behind the door of the gondola going up the mountain, but that’s me and my bike heading up to do the descent down one of the more difficult tracks on the mountain bike layout here at Whistler.bikes on the gondola

I managed to get to the bottom unscathed and ready to haul the bike up the mountain again. Tomorrow bungee jumping is on the cards. Either that, or we’ll head over to Victoria on Vancouver Island.Mountain biking down the track

In the meantime, the beautiful weather keeps following us around. And does anyone know what this bird is?

PS This is a jay that goes by the name of Clark’s Nutcracker. Thanks Deb Reynolds!
