Our Saturday night with the RCMP in whistler

May long weekend in Whistler....
Saturday we did the typical tourist thing.... took bad photos in good locations.

Had Dylan ride a cow for a cheesey photo-op.

Had a lovely dinner at The Old Spaghetti Factory
(I love their pasta)

And after dinner, Mat and I took the opportunity to head back into town (a 5 min walk) to enjoy the night life.  We don't get out much, so to us night life starts at about 8 pm, and basically means nachos on a patio.  We were back at the hotel by 11pm.  In the morning Mat's parents asked how our night was. 
We shared that we had ended the evening in the company of the Whistler police. 
It's true.....

Ok, picking up on the story....
Sooooooo we did indeed spend the last part of the evening with the RCMP.

for once it wasn't something Mat did
(just kidding on that)

So, one thing we didn't know, is that May long weekend in Whistler is the biggest party for teens next to New Years Eve.  Police were out in force- the pubs were steady- but the pedestrian streets of Whistler were crazy busy with drunk, loud, obnoxious, horribly dressed teens there to celebrate grade 12 graduation.
Ohhh Joy.
Didn't bring my camera- but I should have.  It was madness !  Seriously elbow to elbow with drunk teens.  We witnessed a horrible fight amongst where one guy got knocked to the ground by a very scary crazed teen.  Long story short, we told the police we witnessed it and could identify the guy, and wandered around with them trying to find him.  We couldn't locate him- which in some ways I'm glad about because I know my first thought was testifying months down the road, and knowing what it's like to be a witness in court- I didn't want to do that again.
So needless to say- if Dylan ever asks to go to Whistler for grad.
