Having a raining mid-week day off was kinda sucky, but having access to a car for this one day, was pretty great.
We ventured out of the city for a change of scenery. Listened to podcasts and great music along the way via John’s iPod (catching Weird Al‘s new song via the DSC podcast, funny stuff).
After we stopped for TimHo coffee, filled up on gas for $1.03/L in Abby and enjoyed a drive through the valley, we were then on our way up to Cultus. Driving past fruit stands, dairy cows and pastures, the tiny heritage city of Yarrow reminding John of ‘Anytown, Iowa’ minus the mountains.
I haven’t mini golfed at Cultus in YEARS, I can’t believe the cartoony renovation to the place! After a brief discussion (to golf or not to golf) we got out in the rain and played 18 holes. The BRIGHT blue water kinda freaked me out though… I asked “Is that where blue slurpees come from?”
Despite the water, the freakishly lumpy course (seriously things rolled UP hill) and the rain, we really made the best of a gloomy soggy day.
