I spent several days in Vancouver this week, at the Granville Island Hotel.
Astonishingly, we had three consecutive days of bright sunshine. Here’s a view of the harbour from the bridge that crosses to the island.
Granville Island is a bit too touristy for my tastes. But the market is a nice bonus (fresh fruit and bread) if you’re going to stay right on the island.
The Canada geese added some colour to my visit. There were two pairs of mates; one of them was caring for eight goslings.
The geese are accustomed to having people around. Although the parental geese were usually watchful —
