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!

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!
