O Canada! Our home and native land! This week I found myself unexpectedly landing in Vancouver, Canada (my old home). Blessed with good weather, I was able to snap some photos of my favorite places in and around the False Creek/Granville Island area. If you find yourself in Vancouver this summer, I strongly recommend that you consider stopping by Granville Island. It’s one of my favorite markets to source fresh and tasty food. Today’s post is primarily pictorial.
Taking the aquabus is one of the my favorite ways to see and get around the harbor area.
Dragon boat practice
Entering the market area…
(I worked for one of the vendors in the market many years ago, while going to university. This trip is always very nostalgic for me)
Fresh fruit and vegetables.
[Low Sodium] Spices and Herbs
Hands down, the Stock Market is one of my favorite soup kitchens.
(While they don’t claim to be no salt added, the delicious stocks are made with minimal salt).
Bridges – one of the best places to rest your tired soul and recharge (also one of the best water view/drink spots).
There are all sorts of artisan shops, food, bars and eateries.
Waterfront living. Well, at least we can (drool and) dream…
