Granville Island, Vancouver

I had the pleasure of tagging along with my husband on a business trip to Vancouver.  Our plane landed on a Saturday morning and our first choice was to visit Granville Island.  To get there we took a sea bus to the island.  Granville Island has a farmer's market full of great things to eat, restaurants, artists, and many vendor selling beautiful things.  There is also live entertainment.  It was the perfect spot to wake us up after a cross country flight.

Fresh produce
So many food choices

Flower markets
 Of course I couldn't leave the island without visiting a lovely craft store called the Maiwa Supply store.  This store carries a variety of craft materials such as yarn, felt, dye and many other craft supplies.
