In the shadows of skyscrapers....

When I was in Vancouver, one of the localities that I loved visiting was Granville island.

Granville Island sits in the middle of False Creek, the body of water that separates Vancouver from the city's West End.

 This 37-acre industrial wasteland in Vancouver’s False Creek
 has been transformed into a vibrant locality with artists and artisans, talented buskers, a Farmer’s  market and  many independent shops. You can laze in cafes with a view or  indulge in beer tasting at the Granville Island Brewery.

The  Aquabus, provides ferry service from Granville Island to Downtown Vancouver.

We walked the many winding alleys here and made serendipitous discoveries.

I just loved these cramped boat houses with the ocean at the doorstep,
on the eastern edge of Granville Island. Bright colours and tourists gawking at your backyard- the thirty odd residents here sure have some quirky homes.
