Granville Island, Vancouver

This is my first ever visit to Vancouver (to Canada at all, actually!) and I am 100% in love already.  What a city! And the people are just so take-your-breath-away-lovely. Seriously.  Vancouver, I’m in love!

With curiosity niggling at our brains and hunger brewing in our bellies, we whipped ourselves over to Granville Island for the afternoon.  Positioned spectacularly under the eaves of the Granville Bridge the ‘island’ (actually a peninsular…funny how that happens…) is abuzz with restaurants,  eateries,  drinkeries, theatres,  shops,  and a fantastic marketplace.  We busied ourselves mostly with market shopping (which caused a lot of market eating! ) and local beer tasting. What an afternoon, what an atmosphere,  what a spot! Could easily see myself becoming a regular someday in the not too distant future…!
