it's all in the hips

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.

Rainy Mini Golf Day

Rainy Mini Golf Day

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.

    Hello Missy!

    This is a very intriguing and clever blog! Way to go!

    Clicked on your name at VCOE.

    I miss mini golf. We don’t have that in northern BC. But that course at Cultus Lake looks wicked.

    Very sweet pics taken by you and your husband as well. I checked them all out. You two have skills!

    I can’t believe you mini golfed without me & Chris! We’ve been talking about it for weeks. Mind you, Chris wants to go this weekend for his birthday but the boy is sick…. 🙁

    […] new mini golf course in Parksville near Tigh-Na-Mara called Riptide Lagoon. If you’ve played the course at Cultus Lake it looks like a similar design […]
