Today I went to Granville Island and saw a few intriguing sights while there.
The web guide to the place describes it as:
Guaranteed to make the folks back home really jealous.
Imagine an island in the middle of a city. ... A living, breathing urban oasis filled with fine waterfront restaurants, theatres, galleries, studios, unique shops, cafes and the most spectacular fresh food market you’ve ever seen.
in the delightful company of an old friend of mine...
Good times! I hope, my friends, that you are finding small pleasures to lift your spirits as well.
Wish you were here.
