Ray and I woke up at 7:30, I guess walking so much pooped us out. A lazy start to our morning and making sure Ray uses the hot tub before we start out our day today. Muffins and coffee to start. After Ray's hot tub and me working on the blog, we finally took the car out of the parkade and headed towards Squamish to check out Alexander Falls. How beautiful.
"Alexander Falls is a very impressive 43 metre/141foot waterfall just 30 to 40 minutes south of Whistler in the Callaghan Valley. Open year-round and located just before Whistler Olympic Park where several of the 2010 Olympic events were held. There is a nice viewing platform on the edge of the cliff across from the falls which crash fantastically into the valley below."
Here are some pictures Ray took of the falls and the mountains.
Next it was off to get some lunch. We chose Dusty's BBQ at Whistler Creekside. The food was great. Ray and I shared the pulled pork tacos and the BBQ ribs. Delicious. The gondola from Creekside was working only for bikers going up the mountain.
There was also a private gondola next to the Whistler Creekside Gonola that was private only for the expensive houses on the ridge called Kadenwood which is a neighbourhood located on Whistler Mountain at the highest allowable building elevation in Whistler (almost 1,000 ft above the valley floor).There are a total of 60 home-sites in Kadenwood.

At 5 pm it was time to get changed and figure out where to go. First up was on Ray's wish list, having a beer on the Village Stroll. We got a small table at the Brew House on the stroll. This place is owed by the same company that we visit in Surrey, called Big Ridge Brewing. Somewhat different menu though.
