Vancouver Neighborhoods: Granville Island


Now that the sun is out, I can enjoy long beautiful walks through our lovely city every weekend. Last Sunday was spent exploring Granville Island.

We hopped on a ferry boat from the docks near the Aquatic Centre which took us across the water straight to busy Granville Island.

So what did we explore first? Well we went to the marina and took photos of my outfit which you will be able to see in my next post. Hint : peachy pink anyone?

Then we explored all the little shops filled with beautiful crafts from pottery to handwoven scarves and hand picked  jewelery from far away places. I picked up this beautiful silver elephant necklace.


A trip through the kid's market can't be missed if you find yourself on Granville Island. For sure visit the jokes shop on the second floor and pick up some joke or magic kits. We have a couple and they always prove entertaining at parties.

Next we stopped by the flower stands to look at the beautiful hydrangeas. Yes they are my favorite flowers if you haven't guessed by now. They are always sitting pretty on my entrance table in the spring time.


Lastly we shopped the public market for baguettes from the french boulangerie and some yummy truffle pate from Oyama Deli. If you have never tried their pates, you have truly missed heaven on earth.

We then hopped on the ferry boat which took us right back home where  we enjoyed a late night unhealthy but very delicious snack.
