Granville Island….its history dates back to 1886, where it’s seen its fair share of Up’s and Down’s, which included land disputes, fires, successful and not-so successful saw mills, squatters, a typhoid scare, murder, and more. More on the history here – Granville Island History
Filled with Arts & Culture, Food Markets, Events, Entertainment, Waterfront Restaurants, Theatres, Galleries, Studios, Unique Shops, and of course…Cafes. Granville Island Website
It reminded of a place in my hometown of Winnipeg Manitoba called The Forks. It’s a place that I really enjoyed and now I get to enjoy a similar place with it’s own unique qualities…Granville Island.
Something about food markets, unique gift shops, cafes, and buskers that make it very inviting and enjoyable…Loved it!
If you get a chance, drop in and check out John Nutter’s Glass Studio , which I find this particular artistic expressions fascinating. Everyone has a story and speaking with John was no different. It was a nice feeling to connect with a someone who was originally from my home town. I didn’t take any photos, which I regret, but for good reason…. I couldn’t do his creations any justice with photos, you have to see them in person. Thanks for taking the time to speak and share a few stories with me John!
