Float Plane to Victoria

Yeeeeee Haaaaw across the Glaciers

sunny 25 °C

Dear All

A short note to update you on the absolute fantastic experience we had today.

12 of us flew by Float Plane from Whistler to Victoria. OMFG! What a treat!

So we wander around down town Whistler and buy a few little trinkets and then head back to the hotel to get ourselves prepared for the flight. (read have some caffeine). Get picked up by Taxi and get driven to a Golf course! Of course, that is where all float planes take off. Who knew!

After some guffawing and clowning around clicking ourselves silly with Cameras we were ushered onto the Plane.

I did feel a little concerned for one of the group because he was placed near an exit door. However his wife was placed at the front of the plane and her foot was out of range of poor hubby , so clearly someone realised this person's life might be in jeopardy! I do believe he hadn't completed his understanding of the Marriage Vows Chapter 5, Clause 3, Sub heading 34, Paragraph 2 outlining he must be a doormat no matter what! :-) Poor man. I'm sure he will eventually get the hang of this in the next Century or so!

Anyway. Took off and spent the next 55 minutes going Yee Haw, WOW, OMG, and other incredibly excited superlatives. We flew across the top of some of the Glaciers and I'll swear we were about 20 foot clear. It was an absolute hoot!

You should've seen us in the cabin. Cameras were being swapped from side to side, nudging each other as different things came into view which the other side might not be able to see. I can't believe that no cameras were harmed in the making of this episode of the blog!

There were also some mountains we flew between and I'll swear I could've reached out and touched them.

When we had landed and the pilot (Australian by the way) had turned everything off, I sat there and stated very loudly AGAIN!

So. All in all a wonderful experience.

Certainly one of the absolute highlights for the tour

Take care all
