There & Back Again

Ron and I have logged over 12,000 kms over the past two weeks and spent 15+ hours on planes.  That doesn't include time spent lolly gagging around airports, or in transport to and from, for that matter!  (PS, Thanks Bill Bryson for the nifty title...he's a travel writer and I shamelessly stole it from one of his books.)

Our flight out to Vancouver was a bit of a disaster as we were re-routed through Calgary, as Montreal's airport was under runway repairs.  (They could have at least TOLD us...but Air Canada did their very best to get us where we needed to go as efficiently as possible.)  Anyway, on our arrival in Vancouver, we basically started eating and didn't stop until we ran out of time.  Dim Sum, Tunisian, Japanese, Indian, West Coast Fusion...we ate it all.  Delicious!

We visited old haunts and enjoyed many of the amenities that Vancouver had to offer. Here are some photos (of course!):


Commercial Drive Produce Store

Thought this was a funny & ironic sign...our door is open, just not this one!

Very possibly the best photo I have ever taken...thanks sunshine!

Hand made lollipops a la Hallowe'en at Granville Island.

 For my people from "Here", (as opposed to away) here are some pictures of Granville Island, which may explain why I miss it!
Produce as far as the eye can see.  Need guilan?  They've got it!

Flowers, flowers, flowers!

Fancy Italian?  Stop here.

Don't want to cook?  Try their sweet potato country salad, risotto cakes, tomatoes & bocconcini...
Sausages, deli meats, cheese of all descriptions

Broths & soups & sauces
Care for goat cheese?
There's tons more pictures, but I think you get the idea. That's what I miss, along with family and friends who are never far from my thoughts or heart.

I guess that's all I have for now. I've run out of steam having walked so long down memory lane.

  1. Just caught up on your blogs since we have been away.

    Your right, very nice picture with the lighting.
    Worth blowing up and printing in high gloss, or maybe photo shop it and make it a bit softer or grainy to look like a painting,it reminds me of Vermeer..
