This morning we walked up to English Bay, stopped for coffee, then walked along the beach to False Creek Water Taxi.  It was a beautiful sunny clear day.  The little ferry took us on the short ride to Granville Island.

We spent a lot of time in the market drooling over the fantastic array of foods and getting ideas for a booth at our own farmers market. Finally we saw some irresistible crab rolls and got them for our lunch.  We took them outside and ate them while looking out over the yacht basin and the Vancouver skyline.   We heard some musicians and spent a bit of time watching performance artists do various impossible things with their bodies.  Then we walked a few blocks up the street and caught a bus for the University of British Columbia.

Our aim in visiting this gorgeous campus was to see the Museum of Anthropology.  This museum has an amazing collection of Indian artifacts from the Pacific Northwest, displaying totems, war canoes, wood carvings, baskets, textiles and other beautiful objects of art. 
Our return trip took us through downtown Vancouver, a pretty lively place on a lovely Saturday afternoon. The narrow streets were lined with trees and trendy shops and jammed with hip young shoppers.

After a break we decided on Thai for dinner, but the local place was closed.  That FORCED us to return to Legendary Noodle.  This time I got the Spicy Garlic Pork with Thick Noodle and Mark got Brisket Beef Noodle Soup.  We also had to have Grandmom's Dumplings again.   Even better this time.

Mark is forced to go 6 meters from the building in order to smoke.  6 meters for freedom.  There is a beautiful garden right outside our hotel with an ashtray and the weather has been perfect, so don't feel too sorry for him.
