Breakfast, Of Course
We had a small breakfast from Purebred of just a coffee and a croissant.
We ate this quickly and finished off getting ready for the day, and then checked out, which we were able to do by phone, which was great.
We got everything into the car and then went for a bit of a final walk around Whistler.
We got ourselves some drinks for the day and the went back to the hotel to grab the car.
Alpha Lake & Nita Lake
We drove out to a couple of lakes near where we were going just to pass the time before our activity.
We just had a walk around and chatted for a bit, but it was actually a little cold.
Kim thought it was a good idea to go on the swing…But she then realised it was not.
We finished walking around these lakes and got back to the car to drive to the quad biking place.
The check engine light came on, which wasn’t ideal, but we managed to make it there fine.
For Curtis’ birthday, Kim got us a quad biking tour close to Whistler.
We got there and there was just 2 other people joining us for our tour, which was excellent!
We set off on some big quad bikes and did a bit of practice to acclimate to the bikes and ensure we were safe.
We began our tour and it was actually a little technical! There were a lot of stones around to navigate over, but we got to the first viewpoint pretty quickly.
Unfortunately, as with everything at the moment, the view wasn’t very good due to the smoke, but there was a nice river.
We continued on and went up a mountain which was pretty difficult with much larger rocks to get over and some steep hills but we made it to the top!
Again, there is meant to be a good view, but it’s not a very good time for views at the moment.
We had to ride back down the mountain and that was tough as we didn’t want to go too fast over the rocks, but it was incredibly fun and made us think and consentrate for sure.
We got down this part and had a nice flat part we could go fast on and then we came to a thin forest track which was challenging but great!
We then moved into a section that was in a forest still but with a lot of puddles on corners, which got us wet and dirty, especially the one big puddle!
We then headed back to the camp after around 1.5 hours of riding. We had a really great time overall and actually want to come back!
We left here (with our check engine light on still) and drove home.
We got home in about 2 hours and were incredibly tired, but glad we got home even though we had a check engine light on.
We booked our car in for Wednesday and then we relaxed!
We had some frozen pizza for dinner, unpacked and relaxed for the evening.
