I was awakened by laughter and chatting. Sergio arrived safely via shuttle bus and little Mel was on her way. The troops got ready to do the damn thang. Staying right there in Whistler Village was fantastic. Everything was so close by, walking distance is great. We walked right across the street to eat breakfast at Crepe Montagne. Muy delicioso of course, crepes are oh so yummy in my tummy. Toward the end of the meal we received a call from Mel to say she was here. Sis met her outside to let her into the hotel room to get suited up as she decided that she would be boarding that day.
I would not be boarding that day, being that this was my first time in Whistler I decided to take this day to see it, feel it, and love it.
I got to enjoy the day with a very good friend, we went from store to store looking for new snowboots for me, and other cool stuff of course. Got to witness falling snow (scary and funny at the same time since at that moment, as we passed other observers also shocked and freaked one of the guys lightened up the situation and told us "sorry about that" like it was his fault.
A little more shopping and then dinner. And then the anticipation for the following day.. butterflies fluttered all around in my tummy. With every glimpse I've had of Whistler mountain I've been feeling these butterflies. Whether it had been from seeing pictures from past trips of others or seeing it firsthand finally upon arrival.. this was it.. the time had come. Was I ready? Of course I was ready, I was born ready. Lol, i guess not exactly since brith. Let's just was I'm excited, I'm ready, bring it on.
