Victoria Day BBQ

Well... Otto and I are ready for the BBQ... we still hope a few other stuffies might show up but... maybe my email should have had more advance warning?

That might mean there are more sausages for us!

How many sausages are there???

We count 10!!! That would be 5 for each of us... minus 4 for the humans... so that leaves us with 6... so 3 for each of us.

Oh... wait... maybe one for Spooky...

Hmmm... that still leaves a few for us!

Mmmm... fresh potato salad and grilled smokies!!

And a few extras... don't they look delicious?

Long Weekend Guests!

Hullo! It's the long weekend and I am expecting some guests for our Victoria Day weekend BBQ! I sent out an email invite to a bunch of stuffie friends... keeping my fingers crossed...

Today, we are picking up someone from the float plane harbour... cool!

The rhododendrons are blooming... nice!

 That plane is leaving...

Maybe we should get closer and watch it leave?

Nope... guess not!

 There's the plane!!! Do you see it?? In the air over there...

 There it is touching down...

 And coming in to the dock way back there.

Oooh... I think I see our guest!!

It's Rose!!!! With pink hair...

Rose... and...

 Otto!!! Hooray!!

No Starbucks but... something else!

Hullo... last episode found me wandering the streets of downtown Prince George in search of a Starbucks... I kept asking for directions from various Spirit Bears and getting even more lost...

My little feet are tired and I haven't found a single human on these streets. Ohhh... wait... a truck just went by!!! Let's follow it!!

This building looks beary impressive... I wonder if it is a restaurant... maybe a Starbucks?

Ooohhh... it's the new RCMP detachment!!! They have a pretty big detachment because... Prince George is Canada's most dangerous city (per capita). Yup... and... ummm... why are we wandering the streets all by ourselves???

I'm going to go in an ask about Starbucks... (no photos allowed)... too bad I don't have my Mountie uniform! But I do have my Mountie ID...

OK... the short answer... it's "down that way" at the corner of George and 5th. Whew... good directions except... that is way too far away for this little tired bear to walk now!

 I am pooped... and no hot chocolate and... phooie!!!

Wait... what was that... just across the street there is... what?

I don't see anything... or... wait... what is that...

Do you see it???

It's a Tim Horton's!!!

Oooohhhh... I'll have a honey dip donut and a maple dip donut and a honey cruller and....

Mmmm.... back in the hotel room and I can almost taste the donut... mmmm....

... slurp... drool.... huh??? This isn't a donut!!!

 I ordered a donut!!! Where is my donut???

Oh... there it is... he-heh...!

 A honey dip Timmies donut... mmmm.... munch... slurp... drool... mmmm...

For those of you in England who are perplexed by this Timmies thing... you can get a sneak peak this Canada Day!! It's Canada's 150th bearthday and... in celebration... Canada House in London is going to have a pop-up Tim Horton's!!! Check it out!

On the Hunt for a Starbucks

Sooo... apparently this hotel doesn't have room service... so I am going to have to go out and find a Starbucks on my own!

I see that the Zombies seem to be still terrorizing this city... where is everybody???

Oooh... I met this Spirit Bear outside one of the other hotels (I wonder if they have room service)... He said the Starbucks was "thataway"... alright... let's go!

 Ummm... not Starbucks "thataway"... and still no one else out and about!

 But I met another Spirit Bear who said it was "over there"! OK... let's go!

Honestly... this is getting kind of freaky... sigh... I am getting foot-weary.

 I hope this Spirit Bear has better instructions... "head north 2 blocks, then west 3 blocks, and 1 block south"... OK... let's go! (I hope this is north...)

Oooh... artist's easels...

I know a certain mouse who would enjoy this store!!!

Ah-hahahah!!! "I can't draw, but I can paint"!! That's a good one...

hehehehe... That's kind of like saying... "I can't write, but I can blog"!!

 But... we are no closer to a Starbucks apparently... sigh... I think I went the wrong way "north"...

One more Spirit Bear... please... the way to Starbucks? "Follow the yellow brick road"????

Seriously... this little bear is famished and thirsty and... will I ever find a Starbucks??
