If I Had a Boat

Met a friend for lunch today at Granville Island (one of my favourite places in Vancouver and definite go-to market when I'm entertaining guests for dinner) and we took a stroll around after we ate. There was something about this scene that was so quintessentially Vancouver to me that I couldn't resist taking a quick snap of it. The green glass & concrete towers of downtown, the Granville Street Bridge, and this collection of house boats moored at Granville Island. The long narrow boats are dragon boats. When I got closer I saw that they have False Creek Racing Canoe Club stenciled on the side. And look, sunshine!

Title for today's post taken from this Lyle Lovett song.


  1. I like this one. Much to look at.

  2. Nice!!! Gosh, I'd love to have a houseboat in this area!
