Granville Island, July 2012

The last few weeks have been very busy as we have been entertaining visitors – David’s Mum Sue and her friend Mal arrived about 3 weeks ago.  We have been very lax posting updates of the things we’ve been doing so here’s the first of a few to catch up.

We spent a good day at Granville Island, a popular spot for visitors to Vancouver. Sue had never been to Granville Island on her previous visits and we hadn’t been ourselves for a few years so it was refreshing for us too.


Much of Granville Island is located directly beneath the Granvile Street bridge as it rises to cross False Creek.


The market is always a popular spot to browse and see the fresh caught fish and locally grown produce.


Granville Island also offers a host of unique and interesting artisan stores, including this intriguing hat shop.


Great views of False Creek from the waterfront.



Of course the visit wouldn’t be complete without an alfresco lunch of fish & chips !


While watching the traffic on the harbour and the little Aquabus’ buzzing from station to station.
