Pan Pacific Gets a Little Extra Security

image002The weather was amazing last week tipping 30 degrees, or 86F, several days in a row. Beaches and golf courses were very busy as everyone enjoyed the sun.

I enjoyed an amazing Whistler day last Friday, took the Peak 2 Peak sight seeing tour with friends from out of town and it was simply amazing. The trip up the mountain never gets tiring, it is special every time we take guests up for a nice alpine walk and excellent lunch at Christine’s (Jan’s favorite) at the Rendezvous Lodge on Blackcomb. It’s still chilly up on the mountain, even with the sunny weather, so make sure you take a shell or extra layer. After the alpine walk and amazing Eggs Benedict at Christine’s, the girls went for a Village stroll and hit the Spa at 2pm. Peter and I had a 2pm tee time at the Whistler Club, and a great day of golf. We both managed to stay under 90 which was not too shabby. Fortunately there were no Bears on the course, I think the heat kept the bruisers in the shade. We did however encounter a slightly built Coyote wandering around on the 4th hole like we were not even there, it was a very pretty sight.

Sgt Dave Smith was with us as part of the Canada Day celebrations with Justice (horse) & Coyote (German Shepherd) which is always a big hit with the kids. Apples and carrots were the snacks of the day, and guests regularly had the opportunity to feed Justice. The visit was a real treat for not just our guests, but hotel associates and locals alike.

I haven’t been out on any of the local lakes in the last week and  there was no news from Dave Currie, our Sous Chef in the Dubh Linn Gate, who is our resident fishing expert. We hope to see an update next week on our Blog. Michael in Maintenance did advise a great day on Lost lake, spin casting with a small spoon for rainbows up to 14 inches.

Alta lake was the host lake for the second annual Dragon boat festival last weekend and the weather was perfect. It was very busy complete with lots of children, face painting, and the afternoon breeze on Alta lake. The festival brought out an amazing collection of small sailing crafts all of which were so beautiful as they smoothly and quickly sailed across the water. We are all looking forward to the amazing weather forecasted for the upcoming weekend.

Have a great week, and keep those you love the most, close.
