10 ~ TEN ~ 10

so ... yesterday ... the 10th day of the 10th month of the 10 year .... i'm guessing this won't happen for another thousand years or so ...  It was also my daughter's birthday ... which for us was even a bigger deal! And such a big deal because she didn't have a shift at work, she had some breathing with her college courses, and the clouds and downpours of the day before disappeared completely!  It was the perfect fall day ... so off we went to Granville Island, which is one of our favourite places ... so much art, history, food, skylines, water, life!!!  oh, and shopping ... did i mention shopping???  and everywhere we looked not a scowl or frown to be seen ... seems the entire crowd had the intention to have the best of days ...  perfection!  Here's a few pics ... i can't wait to scrap them!

loved these little pumpkins hanging where a sign usually resides
I love this clock

and I love this wall ... I was disappointed to see a lot of it under repair ... 

Granville Island is home to all of the arts, including the stage

I didn't catch the name of these giant exotic local forest mushrooms ... they were next to fresh pine mushrooms that were going for $20. a pound
A look out towards the Burrard Street Bridge ... love this city for its water, beaches, mountains, skyline ....
The blue of this building and the blue of the sky looks amazing!

Have a great day all, it's Thanksgiving day up here in Canada ... wishing a happy Thanksgiving to all of my Canadian friends ...

Happy late birthday to your daughter! I can't think of a better place to go in the city than Granville Island. Sounds like you had a wonderful time.

I'd never heard of Granville Island (which is hardly surprising really) so I looked it up on Google maps. Now I know! I have friends who have just comne home from holidaying in Canada. They ended up in Vancouver and rated it highly.
