False Creek

Spent the day with friends from California who own a condo in False Creek. It is so beautiful there that it is hard to believe that I am in the same city that, only blocks away, has so many homeless people and such an enormous drug problem. I rarely get to see this side of the city and I marveled at how beautiful it really is.
We strolled along the sea wall which led us to Granville Island Market .
It was lunch time and I was so hot and tired that this giant ice cream cone outside the market looked very inviting. Inside the market I was over whelmed with the variety and quality of the food items available. I wanted to try everything and walked through the market sampling everything that they were giving away free that day!

The most delicious of these was an almond vanilla copenhagen made right here in Vancouver! Yum! It was delicious.

We then wandered our way through some of the alley's with little shops in and around the market and came upon a chalk art competition they were hold on one of the side walks. Some of them were very creative like this one that appears to be a drawing from a children's book with the hand that holds the drawing coming out of the drains!
