So we say bye, bye for the moment to the staff at the Wedgewood Hotel & Spa. We told Tim, the head waiter (been there 14 years), Ruby the wonderful smiling Chinese trainee, and all the others that we will be back for one night on the 11th of September. We have already booked the table in the restaurant for 7-00pm. You would have to go a long way to find a better atmosphere, a friendlier staff and a more brilliantly run hotel. The room is serviced twice a day, twice a day for Christ’s sake, where else would you find that? At 5pm someone knocked and asked, “Are you OK for towels?”
The Avis experience collecting the car was not too bad. A very long queue; I do have an Avis preferred card, only because of the frequent visits to Switzerland, which because we had booked the holiday through a travel company did me no good at all and lost us about four spaces in the line, by the time a chap had clicked a computer, pressed many buttons on a key bad and said, “No this doesn’t work with a travel booking.”
So, our little blue car sped us out of Vancouver and along Highway 99, with some lovely views on the way to Whistler. And having thought we had struck gold with the room at the Wedgewood, we were to say at the least taken well aback by the room at the Nita Lake Lodge. The view is just stunning; we have a bedroom and a lounge and the bath is in the bathroom but another cupboard opens and blow me down there is the kitchen sink!!!
And I mean the kitchen sink; it’s just to the right of the microwave.
Mary has been busy with her usual flowers and various and I think if it gets a bit chilly we shall have the fire on. Perlease!
Yes that is snow. Well, we are here for five nights so we will just have to suffer it I suppose!
Tomorrow, well who knows; sat in what feels like a small beautifully appointed flat, over looking a lake………we may never move! Only one way to find out, eh?
