Vancouver - Part 2

The next day we drove to Granville Island. Granville Island is home to many art and craft galleries and a great indoor public market. I could have spent all day wandering through the stalls of fresh fruits, vegetables, bread, flowers and yummy food! Here we did some honey sampling.
Quite the selection of fresh pasta
The desserts...yum.

We then drove to the Lynn Canyon suspension bridge and went on a short hike. It was gorgeous!

It was a long way down!
That night we went to the U2 concert. Awesome. It was the last night of their 360 tour. This was the stage:
Black Eyed Peas opened. We barely made it to hear their last song, "Tonight's gonna be a Good Night." That's the only one I wanted to hear anyway. And literally we only heard it - didn't get to see it. Bummer. Here we are with 55,000 other fans.
We saw a fan run up onto the stage where he was immediately tackled by security. That was kind of exciting. Not that we needed any more excitement - it was such a great concert!
We flew home the next day. It was great to see the kids! They were well-taken care of by Jane and Chris. A big thank you!!

Sadly, we attended a funeral that night for "Streak" the frog. We were sad to see him go.
The rest of the evening was spent readying Halloween costumes for everybody. Welcome home!

It looks so amazingly beautiful. Those food pictures (especially the strawberry one) are beautiful.
What a great trip!

How fun! I love that you guys really know how to live it up--beautiful hikes, fab food, and cool concerts. That bridge...whoah....I may have had second thoughts about crossing it. Crazy.
