A Trip!!

I am off on an adventure!! Yay!!! First step...

Get a Hot Chocolate of course... you always want to start off a trip with a stuffie on the right paw...

Second Step - wait for the ferry... we are off to Vancouer!

 Third Step - plan exciting adventures in Vancouver...

 Based on where we are staying, I identified three possible Hot Chocolate Festival locations... After perusing their flavours... we settled on one!

It was a packed bus from the ferry so... no bus pictures... but we stopped off at Auntie's place to drop off the suitcase and say hello to Daisy...

And Sasquatch... the new cat... hmmm... just like the real Sasquatch, he is beary camera shy!!

Anyhow... off on the grand adventure!

Although I must admit... I wonder why Mama said I needed to pack my winter clothes...

Seriously... does this look like winter weather? I'd have been better with my rain slicker.

Success!!! We found the 49th Parallel Cafe... alrightee...

I ordered the Saturday Nut Fever hot chocolate... it is a hazelnut flavoured hot chocolate...,mmm... can't wait!

Ooh... and it comes with cookies!!! And a pretty design on the hot chocolate...

The two whitish cookies were crispy, maybe an egg white and sugar concoction? They were OK... But the dark brown ball was pure heaven... soft delicious ganache rolled in nuts.... mmmmm. As for the hot chocolate it was... meh... OK. Nothing to write home about though. Sigh...

 Anyhow... back home and Sasquatch deigned to pose for the camera. He shared a tin of Ferrero Kuesschen with me (that's Ferrero Kisses). You can only get them in Germany and a cousin sent some to Auntie... They are soooooooooo good!

A whole tin for me??? Mmmm....

By the way... in case you were wondering... Sasquatch is named for his Big Feet.... he is a polydactyl cat with extra toes everywhere. Which means extra claws... They call him Mr. Sassy Pants for short but...

I think I'll just call him Mr. Sasquatch... claws and stuffie fur don't go well together you know...

Although... it seems like he is quite friendly with Daisy!

    1. They are the coolest cats! Sassy Pants has extra toes on his back feet too, which is apparently quite rare.

  2. Looks like Mr. Sasquatch is taking over some of Daisy's bed.

    1. He does that... Daisy will snuggle in and then all of a sudden, Sassy jumps up and sort of oozes his way in there inch by inch.

    1. They are, aren't they? Do dogs get extra toes like that? Or is it just a cat thing?

  6. You are a beary spoilt stuffie. Lucky you going to Vancouver. Have fun. Try not to get to fat eating chocolates. Your cat and dog friends are cute.

  7. Does Sasquatch do toe wiggles? We know a certain bear in England who would love to know that.

    1. Sasquatch does toe stretches when all his 6+ claws on each foot come out for show... it's enough to make a little bear gulp and back away!
