An Urban Walk Around False Creek in Vancouver

I have been testing out a series of walks to take my cousin on when she arrives in Vancouver next month.

Although I’m still in the process of organizing everything when I saw Nancy Merrill’s Photo Challenge: Urban I couldn’t resist posting some of my favourite shots from a couple of my walks in False Creek South.

These walks all started on the Sea Wall by Granville Island, which is well-worth taking a few hours to explore all on its own. Granville Island park with a grassy knoll, VancouverFrom there I headed east along the Sea Wall exploring south False Creek. Near the Cambie Bridge is a ferry landing with deck chairs, sometimes a piano and a space where a bunch of kids had been writing with chalk after what sounds like an exhausting walk around the city. They aren’t great photos so I’ll only post one but will write up some of my favourites:

  • My feet are hurting, we are having so much fun, but we are hungry
  • We walked way too much, but it was a lot of fun, I’m so glad we’re done
  • My feet are bleeding, but it was a blast, Eugene just threw up
  • Our legs are dead, we are so tired right now, can I have a nap?
