Happy New Years and 2016 to you! I hope you have the greatest year yet!
Let’s just call a spade a spade. Everyone is tired on New Years Day, its a fact. Sleep in, catch up on the sleep you missed, and start the year off on an energized foot.
Well that was our plan at least. We decided to take a break from the skis and trade them in for harnesses.
Baby, we were zip lining into 2016!
If you’re anything like me, adventures and trying new things get you incredibly excited. Why not try zip lining over a forest upside down? It’s a lot of fun!
Our guides Noah and Max led the charge up the mountain and into the forest fearlessly. They even taught us a ton of cool facts – where bears hibernate on the mountain, what the moss (its not actually moss) on the trees was, how to hang upside down, and more.
The moss, thats not actually moss, is really Lichen. It only grows in areas where the oxygen is pure and pollution is low. The higher up the mountain you go, the more you will find. I’m always amazed at how smart nature is.
Although a little chilly, we had a great time zipping from one tree house to another, trying to keep the ear to ear smiles on our faces to a socially acceptable level.
Once we had said our goodbyes and travelled back down the mountain, we went off in search of some food for our rumbling bellies.
We had been eyeing BASALT all week, but had never had the patience to wait for a table. In typical fashion, Roberta talked our way in, and we we seated with wine on the way.
The best part of the night was laughing over our crazy trip, but the charcuterie board came in a close second.
Dubliner Cheddar, Sage Ripened Cheese, Salumi Tartufo, Chorizo Iberico, house pickles, mustard, and bread sticks, really made our hearts sing.
What can we say, we love a good charcuterie board.
Roberta ordered the West Coast Seafood Bouillabaisse and I had the Pancetta Wrapped Ross Down Farms Chicken Breast. They were both very good, but I think the charcuterie was the real show stopper that evening.
We said our thank you’s and were off once again to grab a drink with a friend and end one of our last days in Whistler with great music and drinks.
