As some of you have probably noticed by now, I’ve been frequently visiting Vancouver over the past of couple years. I guess you could say that it’s becoming a third home for me.
Even though the scenery is really nothing new, I still walk around town armed with my trusty camera. That being said, this post is going to be fairly random as I share some of the things I saw this time around.
Some pretty cool Munny looking figures over at Cube Inc.
Sadly I didn’t have any change on me, but it was still so tempting to just press that button…
Why yes, that is a huge metal Hello Kitty robot that is being piloted by another smaller Hello Kitty.
Daiso always has the cutest most random things!
A pretty crazy looking Chinese Zodiac display at some random jewelry store in Aberdeen Centre.
Speaking of Chinese New Years…
…it was extremely packed at the Richmond Buddhist Temple!
Well that is straight to the point.
We stopped by Steveston Harbour to set some sharks and manta rays free like we did last year but sadly there weren’t any for sale at the time.
We did at least got an unexpected visit from a lovely pair of swans!
Unfortunately they didn’t hang around for too long.
As always on any Vancouver trip, we had to make a stop at Granville Island.
There’s always neat and interesting things you’ll find here even just aimlessly walking around, such as this assortment of wooden figurines…
…to someone even making a ukulele from hand. Awesome!
It was raining out when we got there so we tried to stay indoors as much as possible.
Even then, walking around the island in the rain offers its own special atmosphere!
We took refuge inside Emily Carr for a short while since it was raining outside.
The students here always seem to find their various ways to have fun on campus throughout the year.
Oh how I just love this place!
That’s all for now, but be on the lookout for a couple more posts on the way about two of my favourite things from Vancouver: cars, and food!
