The wedding yesterday was beautiful. It was held on Whistler Spit of Green Lake. The weather was perfect.
The first full day we were here Tim and the group from Charlotte did a cross country ride.
While they were out riding I wandered around the Village. I managed to find the Public Library. It's a new building and it's fabulous.
It took a full day of traveling to get here. A delay leaving Charlotte made us late getting into Dallas. The airline met us at the gate with a van to drive us across the runway to make our connecting flight to Vancouver. Customs took some time but we had no problems. The Vancouver airport is under construction - they are getting prepared to host the 2010 Winter Olympics. We got our rental car and headed through downtown Vancouver traffic to the Sea and Ski Highway. The view on the drive up were incredible.

The Bridge of Sighs by Richard Russo. Tim and I started listening to this on audio and both enjoyed it. We weren't able to finish listening to the entire thing (it's about 21 CD's long) so I am taking the book so we can finish.
Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers by JRR Tolkien. This is a book that Tim loves to read. I have never read it, but I love the movie, so I'm going to give it a try.
That makes two books we'll both be able to read. I also plan on downloading The Tortilla Curtain by TC Boyle onto my MP3 player. My book club will be discussing it this month so I need to get it read.
And, of course, we have a Vancouver/British Columbia guide book.
And that's what a librarian takes on vacation. We aren't forgetting to take our cameras - don't worry - there will be pictures.
