Public market in Grandville Island

Food is the most pleasure during any trip. Local foods and thing you can't miss. What a pleasure to taste everything I see! The Grandville Island is famous for its public market in the middle of the water. A small water taxi takes us to the island in about just few minutes!

Everything looked so delicious. Cakes, Breads, Pastries, Salmons in fillos, juicy fruits and vegetables, well, everything. I wish I could have one extra stomach that can eat everything I wanted to try!

Victoria, it is.

My friend and I thought that January as a season of winter is not the greatest time to visit anywhere. We knew. However, when you think of Vancouver, you can't miss Victoria, right?

In the rain,

Strolling and Exploring

Yummy looking gorgeous stuff were waiting for me!

While traveling, don't you imagine what local people eat, where they buy groceries, and what are available only in the local area? Well, I do. I love to explore markets, food stands, tiny corner stores, and deli.

Color of fruits in the market are brilliant. Natural colors are very appertizing. Besides red, green, yellow, white, pink for fruits and vegetables, I could see a lot of Olympic symbol color-blue, everywhere in Vancouver.

Vancouver Therapy
b0155270_1292636.jpg

Strolling in the downtown, Vancouver. Here is the very famous landmark in Vancouver, steam clock. It was there just next to the restaurant that we had a cozy lunch at. Steam, fog and rain. Oh, I just love them. I was sure I could live in this city. By the way, the clock was smaller than I imagined. Who invented this? I forgot.

Vancouver is filled with the image of water. The ocean is just there, next to you. The atmosphere and misty air made me more calmer and feel peace. Relaxation, it is. If there is any such a therapeutic method, I would name it Vancouver therapy.

Grateful Trip to Canada
なぜかここから英語ですが、というのも2月に行ったカナダ旅行について、英語でまとめていたのです。それをいまさらですが一応記録として残したくて乗せました。カナダ、素敵なところですね♪もう一度行きたい!

It has passed 4 months already. Well, yes, my trip to Canada was happened with my friend in the middle of February.

It is very true that you don't really visit some places if you live there, right? At least, to me, yes, I do agree with it. During my life in San Francsico, I didn't have chance to visit Canada. Canada is so close where you can visit anytime you want. Few hours flight will take you there. I always wanted to go but never had a chance. Ok, the last destination from San Francisco should be definitely Canada.

But where in Canada?

Cherry Picking

もう1ヵ月半以上前のお話ですが、6月のある日。久しぶりに遠出をしました。目的はさくらんぼ。旬のフルーツは甘くて新鮮でおいしいですよね。特にさくらんぼは旬の期間が短いだけに、毎年さくらんぼ狩りは大人気ですよね。サンフランシスコにいたときも、よく足を伸ばしてCherry pickingに行きました。

まだ雪の残る山を見ながら、一路山梨へ。もうすぐ甘いさくらんぼに出会える♪

本当に文字通り食べ放題なんですね。主に佐藤錦というさくらんぼ。口に入れるとぷちっと弾けて、甘い果汁がなんともいえない新鮮な感覚。もうこれ以上食べられない!というくらいおなかいっぱい頂いて、山梨の農園をあとにしました。帰りの道中、「さくらんぼの食べすぎでおなか痛くなったら本望だよねえ~」と母と言い合いながら、楽しくおいしい小旅行を振り返ってみました。ぜいたくな一日。ごちそうさまでした。
