Photo Scrapbook: Vancouver's Granville Island

Doug and I had a great day on Granville Island - home to eateries, food and flower stalls at the Public Market, live theater and art galleries. It was a highlight of our 5-day stay in Vancouver along with the Vancouver Art Gallery and Stanley Park.

The deck outside the Public Market gives visitors a spectacular view of downtown Vancouver.

We enjoyed talking with vendor Norman Strim at his booth in the Granville Island Public Market. His balsamic reduction gourmet sauces were delicious!

Decorated cement trucks, like this one we saw on our visit to Granville Island, are a reminder that Vancouver's "hip" area was once an industrial zone - rehabbed in the 1970s to now attract tourists with food and flower stalls, ethnic restaurants, art galleries and boutique shops.
