Vancouver Incident

5 or so years ago a very good friend of the Cass Family got married in Zurich, Switzerland. The effect that this had on the family is that the girls, despite growing up in the rainforest of the NorthWest, know what the Holidays are suppose to look like. We weren’t planning another trip to Zurich but we decided that a quick jaunt to the very Continental city of Vancouver B.C. by train would be a great start.  As the train left the station we had the feeling that the holidays were getting closer with every passing mile on the swaying train track.


4 hours later including the border crossing we were ready for an adventure.  The entire troupe save Bloobie had squirreled away in our bags and they wanted out. We checked into the hotel, had a nap and then got down the first order of business. Ice Skating, followed by High Tea at the Fairmont Hotel and finally, the Christmas Faire at night a few blocks away. Hot Mulled Cider, Spiced Wine, Sausage and Sauerkraut, Lederhosen and Mountain Horns.  There was even a Merry-go-Round. What more can you ask for. O.k.,………I would like some snow but it was a grand time and we are already planning to do it again next year.
