Well, we woke up to overcast skies but no rain so that was better than the weather reports had called for.

We decided to check out Granville Island today and hope that it wouldn’t rain. We probably would have never found it without the help of “Alice” as I have yet to find a really good map of this area, but we did find it and then the next 100 yards was to find a parking spot. There wasn’t an outside spot to be found so we went into a parking garage – oh great, the spots were made for something the size of a smart car not a big truck. We finally found an end spot and John backed in there, we were hanging out at the front but being at the end we figured we wouldn’t really block anybody. His parking in our underground spot at our condo paid off as he had got really good at backing into small spots there!

We walked around and enjoyed browsing through the shops but the prices were well out of our price range so didn’t buy anything. We spent a long time walking through the market – everything looked so nice and fresh but again we didn’t buy anything as I really didn’t need anything. We lucked out as it didn’t rain while we were there!

Some Pictures Taken at the Market

We got back to Steve & Cheryl’s about 5 and Jim & Linda were already there so we had a great visit and Cheryl had a fabulous dinner - salmon & tuna, potatoes, veggies, salad and then apple pie and ice cream for desert. I am still feeling full!

It started to rain about 8 and it looks like it will be another night of rain – at least the sound of rain on the roof is soothing but I don’t want to be soothed for another two or three days!

And so ends another great gift of a day and we look forward to another nice day tomorrow and would be happy to see some sun.
