Talking to Tourists – The Durkees
Every week we’ll hear from one or two of Whistler’s tourists about what they were up to while they were in town and what they think is awesome about Whistler.
Names / Steve & Maraget Durkee with dog Sally
Sally introduced herself to me while I was waiting for my friends to get cash before we hit the Whistler Farmer’s Market. This friendly chocolate lab owns a lovely couple named Steve and Margaret Durkee. The Durkees are second home-owners here in Whistler and knew on a sunny Sunday afternoon, the Farmer’s Market was the place to be.
Where are you from? / Seattle, Washington
What are you doing in Whistler? / We came up for the weekend. We own a home here and try to get up here to enjoy it at least once a month.
What has been the most awesome thing you’ve done in Whistler? / Skiing Couloir Extreme on Blackcomb Mountain. – Margaret
What is the most awesome thing you’ve seen in Whistler? / We love the views of Fitzsimmon’s Creek below the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola. The walk around Lost Lake is very scenic when you can look back at the mountains. The walk along River of Golden Dreams towards Green Lake is also really beautiful.
Thanks for chatting with me Durkee Family!
