Vancouver in Early March – Part 25 – Granville Island

Granville Island is actually a peninsula and shopping district located across False Creek from downtown and under the South end of the Granville Street Bridge. While it was a bit quieter than usual, there were still a lot of people around, just before social distancing rules were put in place.

Our main reason for taking the little put-put (as my wife calls it) across was to get fresh fish and chips at Go Fish beside the Public Fish Sales wharf. While the takeout meal is not inexpensive, it is fresh, very tasty and accessible from the West End in Vancouver.

You place your order at the side window of the booth and then wait about 20-40 minutes (depending on how busy they are) for it to be prepared. While we were waiting, and after our meal, I took some photos along the wharf.

Everything was budding out.

Lunch and lollygagging over, we headed to the market to buy some supplies for our dinner. The kids were coming home and B had promised to cook.

The views from the dock by the market were pretty stellar on this sunny blue sky day.

Shopping over, we jumped back on the put-put and headed back across False Creek.

    1. I used to hate it, because I would always try to drive there and park. Once you commit to walking, cycling, bus or water taxi, the place is a lot less stressful. And there are so mnay food and produce choices. Thanks for reading and commenting Lynette. Have a good Sunday. Allan

  1. Granville Island was one of my favourite places in Vancouver and I was fortunate enough to visit a few times while I was there. Your photos are stunning and I especially love the reflections. Just gorgeous. Lyn

    1. You and me both. Next time we go, come along. Just got off the phone with Brian. All is well, but they are still working from home. Thanks for reading Colleen. Allan

  2. Ah your pictures don’t make me miss Vancouver on tiny bit. Nice place to visit every few years (or decades in my case) but not where I was happy hanging my hat. Granville Island was just starting to come into its own when we left in the 81.

    1. We used to think we could some day live there, but it is unaffordable and has a few drawbacks. Still, in all, as you say, a nice place to visit, especially to see our kids. Cheers, Bernie. Allan
