Vancouver Day 1

I went out yesterday because its so beautiful here and explored Granville Island. There are a lot of stores, craft shops, restaurants, and tourists here! The weather is simply beautiful. Drank a few beers. Now like the usual trips, I’m writing this the morning of the first day and will leave it as a draft post until the end of the day. I am in no real hurry to leave this morning so will probably wait until 9 for breakfast.

Today I head over the Granville Bridge and go north in Vancouver. I have a basic idea about what I want to see but as usual no real plan. I may ride the aqua ferry back just for the fun of it. I’ll post a few of the pictures when I get back from the day’s adventures.

I got back about 3pm from the day’s wandering. I walked over the Granville Bridge and then headed north to cover the northern part of Vancouver. I walked as far north as Stanley Park and then walked through the park there for a bit Very beautiful! I found out that somehow the lens on my Fuji was smudged or had moisture on it so some of the photos did not turn out so well. I’m glad I figured it out after only about 20 or so shots.

Then I headed south to see as much of Vancouver north of Burrard Street. I think I managed to get this done :-). Here’s a few photos of yesterday’s wandering around Granville Island and today’s trek.

It was simply put, a beautiful day out there today to walk around Vancouver. I walked back over and caught the False Creek Ferry back to Granville Island and got a iced Americano coffee and sat for awhile considering how the first day had ended on this trip.

Tomorrow, I head back across the bridge and take the southern route to see a completely different direction in Vancouver. I will probably ride the Ferry over and will walk the bridge back.

So, there’s the first day of this wonderful trip. I felt so good walking today and seeing the city on my terms. Vancouver walking is so good!
