Tour Day #6 Canada

Tour Day # 6 From Sechelt, on the ferry from Langdale to Horseshoe Bay, & onto Whistler

Rick gets up early and tightens the head on Tin Lizzie and changes the headlight bulb, so hopefully that will solve the fuse problem.

 We have breakfast and are on our way to take our last ferry ride from Langdale to Horseshoe Bay. It takes about 40 minutes and is a pretty ride.

When we get off the ferry I want to take the mine tour so we head to Britannia Beach. It was the biggest copper mine in all the British Empire. We don our helmets and go in the mine.

Over 200 steps straight up!

I couldn’t let Carrie out do me by sitting in the wheel well of one of the monster mine trucks!

Then we go up the Sea to Sky highway. Very pretty with all the rivers, lakes, mountain peaks and glaciers. It was hazy today though. I guess we are spoiled with Lake Tahoe’s clear blue skies and lake.

 We stop in Squamish and eat at a place the locals recommended right on the Squamish River, called the Watershed Grill. Here we run into a local with a Model A.

Then it is on up the highway, x 2 over the summit to Whistler, because we turned around to see if the Thieles were O.K, they had a broke wire to their fuel pump. We end up going all the way back to Squamish and getting gas. This time around we stop at Brandy Wine Falls.

We end the day by checking into the Pan Pacific at Whistler Village, very nice. It is like around Squaw Valley or Heavenly. We have to remember what a beautiful area we live in.
