Having been instantly hooked on watching hockey live on Sunday, another
juicy session of ice action compelled me to make the trek from Whistler to
Vancouver for what should have been the ‘gold medal’match between Canada and
Russia. Sensational from the off, it was effectively all over as a contest very
early when Canada went 4-1 up. Still a great occasion and worth being there
just to see the sheer exhiliration of the Canada fans.
With some time to kill after, I made the trip up to Grouse Mountain. Bad
move. Lovely place but it took so long to get there and back, by sea bus, bus
and sky train, there was only time for a Mac attack and to catch the midnight
bus home. Grouse Mountain is nevertheless a picturesque place and in daylight
or on a clear night with no fog affords a wonderful view of Vancouver.
Recommended under the right circumstances.
