Harrison is located in the Fraser Valley about a 90mins drive from downtown Vancouver. The picturesque village is famous for its natural hot springs and for being the home of the Sasquatch - yes as in Bigfoot.
While there, we did as little as possible, venturing outside only in search of food or for a sunnier spot to flop down our embarrassingly pale city dweller bottoms. We came back looking like Dr. Zoidberg and a bit uncertain as to how to operate a rice cooker.
The resort that we stayed in had 3 outdoor and 2 indoor spring fed pools. The water temperature varied between 26C to 40C. We basically hopped from one pool to the next until we got tired at which point we just lolled about on the lounge chairs. Yes it was a blissful few days.
The weather was absolutely gorgeous during our stay:
We stayed at the Harrison Resort and Spa:
This backdrop of woody mountains was our view:
Yes I actually managed to get a tan! I no longer look like a corpse!
I managed to sneak a photo of the indoor pool when no one else was there xD
We ate at the Crazy Fish Bistro on our first night. The food was a bit pricey but since it's a tourist area that's to be expected. The fish was a bit dry and overcooked imho but the crab cakes were amazing!
Crazy Fish Hot Pot:
Trout fillet (yes that is a piece of grilled watermelon xD):Wild Cat Grill. Casual food but pretty tasty and the prices were unbeatable!
Crab stuffed mushroom. Yes there's mushrooms under all that cheese!
This is called a "Silly Billy" and it consists of 2 breaded veal cutlets topped with mushrooms on a baguette:
I had the "Cat's Meow" which was a rotisserie chicken breast with pesto sauce and baked with cheese...mmmm cheese.
This is the Canuck version of "eggs & bangers":
We then decided to take an impromptu hike...
signs of Autumn:
To the beautiful Bridal Veil Falls:
Very aptly named no?
Just so you know, I climbed all the way up in flip flops!!! I nearly died ok.
I leave you with this photo of me breaking the law:
