The 'bath tub'

 Yesterday after a relaxing morning wandering around the city, we got in a bathtub to Granville Island.  The bathtub is what the local's call the little ferries that go back and forth across False Creek.  The Island is know for its markets and interesting little artist shops.  Inside the markets were loads of food stalls, selling everthing you would want, olives, fresh breads, cheeses, cakes etc and a lot of it local produce.  We will definitely be coming back here to do our next lot of shopping rather than going to wing yips. 

Today the weather was bad - it just rained all day.  We headed towards Gastown to find some 2nd hand bookshops, we got wet but managed to dry off whilst finding our next reads.  When we left the bookshop it was dark and still raining so we decided to go and see if the Irish Heather pub was as authentic as the guide makes out - all for research purposes!  After a couple of pints we realised how hungry we were so ordered some food - we were set for the night.  Pot Pie and chips and corned beef and cabbage never tasted so good!  We washed this down with a couple of single malts - dalwhinnie 15 yr old!  Then back to hostel for some more C.S.I!
