Sunday I did some photoing/blogging, then we went with our hostel for a tour of Granville Island, which is apparently a big tourist destination, though I hadn’t really heard of it. It used to be icky and industrial, but they cleaned it up and now it is artsy and contemporary, with workshops, an art school and a market with large amounts of delishuz food.
No one technically lives on the island, as it is a public place, but there are a number of house boats (boat houses? Literally, houses floating on the water, anchored to a dock. Like, full 2 storey proper built houses) that are located tied up to the island, but not actually on it.
We wandered around there for a while, then did a bit of a walk to find me a wool shop. Bought stuff for a project, then we caught a bus back home. Finally managed to make our own dinner, and had a quiet evening in.
