False Creek this weekend.

We always wanted to visit False Creek in Vancouver but something always got in the way, either weather or boat maintenance. There was a good weather window this weekend and available moorage at the False Creek Harbour Authority so in we came. Needed a shoehorn to dock but managed to get in first attempt! Granville Island is Vancouverís version of Pike Place. Staying till Monday March 12 am.

Pretty tight for sure!! Must not be much current in there?

Are people still allowed to anchor in False Creek? Last time I checked it was something like a week, max.

Probably about the only time of the year one can find moorage.
Envy you there on this fine weekend.

False Creek this weekend.

Eric: youíd be even more envious if you knew how much we are paying for moorage and power, but thatís top secret!

Murray: Here are the restrictions.

Pretty open for most visitors. But it does get crowded inside of the Burrard Bridge. My dog Jenny is getting on in years so we wanted to tie up. Dinghying around in the dark and cold isnít what I wanted to do.

Wish I knew about this place before we left to come here yesterday. Itís a 300 m walk from here. $35 for a 3 course meal. Not open on weekends.

What the _ !??!

It's -4C here...not much difference.

Here's a Granville Island Market tip for you. My wife and I got some nummy sandwiches and thought that eating them outside in the sun might be nice. As we walked the short distance to an open bench a seagull dove over her shoulder from behind, at a speed even Johnathan Livingston Seagull would have been impressed by, and knocked her plate to the ground. Onlookers chuckled, my wife didn't!

A couple of years ago, Pam lost a caramel apple tart to a gull at Granville Island. Very aggressive! I wasnít there but she still goes on about it.

Upon entering Petaluma River (a slough), one must safely pass a monstrous Swan.
