The float houses at Granville Island.
The landscape around Vancouver is quite complicated to figure out. Because it's at the ocean there are numerous inlets, islands, beaches and bridges. One of the best ways to get around is on the Aquabus(the little water taxis). We took the Aquabus across False Creek to Granville Island Market. We've done this lots of times before but this time I noticed some float houses that I hadn't seen before right behind the Emily Carr University of Art and Design on Granville Island(best location for an art school ever!) So we took some pictures from the water and then tracked them down behind the art school. Aren't they fun?  They are all very beautiful homes with lovely 'gardens'. A great little community right on the water. They were gently rocking in the swell of the water when we walked past. Everyone has their own sail boat or kayak pulled up by their home - what a life!

It's funny - we've been talking about moving to Vancouver or somewhere near live Salt Spring of Victoria. Vancouver's a really great town.
