In the dark morning hours of the last Monday in November, I hopped onto a bus which took me to Swartz Bay, and the first morning ferry to Vancouver. My sister was visiting the big city for the week, and we took the opportunity to spend some time together, as we wouldn’t be able to spend the Festive Season together this year. We enjoyed a gentle day wandering in the beautiful city; spent some time on Granville Island, heard a lovely young man play beautiful music, and ate a delicious dinner at Vig’s. The last ferry at 9 pm brought me back to Victoria.

A lovely morning sky on South Granville Street. A few flakes of snow fell here and there throughout the day.

I loved the colours of this church and the autumn leaves around it in the dwindling daylight.

Waiting to eat at Vig’s new location on Cambie Street. So delicious, beautiful space, and wonderful service.
