Place 72 – Day 7: Vancouver, BC – First NHL Game!

Haircut

We left pretty early in the morning and walked for about 25 minutes to the hairdresser which Kim was getting her haircut at.

Kim had her hair cut, which took about 45 minutes.

Curtis had a free coffee whilst he waited, too!

Home Time

We walked back home to the apartment and chilled out whilst we waited for our friend to arrive!

A Bar

Our friend arrived and we walked for 20 minutes down to a bar to get some food and drinks.

The bar had free wings, providing you purchase a beer.

We had sweet and spicy wings as well as Guinness BBQ wings.

We sat there until 17:00 and then walked to the ice rink.

Leafs Game!

We got to the area and walked in. When we got in, we just walked around and checked out what they had.

We got to our seats and watched the warm up and then waited for the game to start.

We watched the light show, which was pretty good!

The Leafs went up by 2, after the 2nd period, but lost in overtime. The game was great fun! We had an amazing time and loved the atmosphere. There was about 70/30 Leafs fans, considering we were in Vancouver.

Post Game

We went for a drink at a bar about 15 minutes walk from the area, and it was snowing!

We got a drink here and then we met some of Brodie’s friends and they had a drink.

We walked back to the apartment via the supermarket and got some garlic bread.

We got back and chatted whilst we ate potato smilies, chicken and garlic bread, then it was time to sleep.


This Time Last Year!

Place 70 – Day 11: Victoria, BC – Big Group Lunch

We were up earlier then we have been, around 08:00, as we had guests coming over late morning so we had to prepare.

There was to be 9 of us for lunch, so it was a morning of setting up, peeling potatoes and setting the table.

We went to the shop to get some wine and orange juice and it wasn’t too cold outside.

Linda started cooking the food and then we waited until 11:30 when guests started arriving.

These people were friends and family from of Kim, some of which Curtis had met previously.

We sat and had a drink whilst the food finished cooking. Once the food was ready, we all sat down and tucked in. We had roast pork, mashed potatoes, carrots, peas, brussel sprouts and sweetcorn. The gravy was delicious too!

We all ate and were quite full, but had a gap for some tasty cheesecake.

All the guests left and then we washed up, cleaned up and put everything back to how it was.

Shortly after everyone left, it started to snow which got heavier and heavier, along with the wind.

At 16:00, Curtis watched the Leafs game and Kim sat in front of the fire and caught up reading the blog posts she had missed.

We had some chicken wings and sausage rolls as mid evening snacks as we got a bit hungry.

We sat and watched a variety of TV shows and then it was bed time, we were very tired!

This time last year!
