Canada Day ~ Long Weekend

Canada Day (July 1st) was on a Thursday, so we made a long weekend out of it.....don't you just love long weekends?! We had made lots of plans , but some fell through due to weather not co-operating. One plan, that did happen was my husband and I made a day of it in Vancouver. (we actually had to bring our car in so we took advantage of the situation) We leisurely walked around, headed to Granville Island, and took in all that there is to see there. Beautiful flowers, great smelling food, artisan shops and entertainment.

Here are some lovely flowers that you find at the market.

We then had lunch at a cute little Italian cafe, with fantastic pizza! Before we headed home, we had to stop at a great yarn store, Three Bags Full, so I could buy some yarn for my next big project, which I'll post about soon. On the weekend we did the Grouse Grind. It's such a great feeling to do that climb, and we are all getting faster at it!

Happy Canada Day, and Happy July 4th!
Finally heading into summer vacation mode, have a great week!
