H.R. MacMillan Space Center
One of the places most recommended to me was Granville Island. Granville Island is located on a peninsula across from Downtown. It has a huge public market, bars, restaurants, shopping, theater companies, art galleries, and the Emily Carr University of Art and Design. Tons of photo op spots, but also tons of people.
The flowers on this trip were INCREDIBLE. The Granville Island and its Public Market was just the start.
Oh, the Hydrangeas!

Brazilian artists "Osgemeos" painted these silos at the Ocean Concrete Granville Island site. The artists are internationally known for their public space art.
The Gastown Steam Clock was built to cover a steam vent in the 70s.
Dinner at the Lamplighter might have been the most delicious meal of the trip.

It's important to notice how gorgeous the sky was in these photos. As the wild fires flared up, the sky went from blue to gray, and then to yellow by the time we left for Victoria. There were 185 forest fires burning when we left on the ferry. A good sky makes for a good picture as far as I'm concerned. The remaining posts will show the sky get progressively worse, along with my photos.
