On Thursday I finally went for a walk I've long been anticipating. I've just been waiting for the weather to improve so I could enjoy this walk in all it's splendour. Thursday was just such a day. The sky was mostly clear with a few, fluffy (good meteorlogical term, lol) clouds and mostly a lot of sun.
Just so you know at the outset, I am walking to a well known city tourist attraction, Granville Island Market. This market is a very popular with tourists and locals alike and is set on an island located underneath the main city bridge, the Granville Bridge. But I begin my walk on Broadway and Laurel, right at the corner where Earl's Restaurant is located.
As I commence my walk I can smell a beautiful fragrance coming from these bushes. I walk further down Laurel Street, I can see many more bushes and smell more beautiful fragrances. I had to walk down this pathway for a few blocks. It is a rather steep incline.
Here is some signage that gives a tourist directions to the nearby transit and tourist attractions.
A beautiful little pond.
Now let us continue our journey. This next photo is like looking through a veil of trees. The veil will soon be lifted to show the beauty which waits.........
First up is this stunning water scene. A view of False Creek and the beauty of the boats moored there.
You can even see the lingering cherry blossoms. Those that don't want to say goodbye as most have already done. The beauty of the cherry blossom is so fleeting and so wonderful. I long to see these blossoms each year.
I love the cherry blossoms so much that I even wrote a Haiku verse about them and made a small video project in honour of the cherry blossom. Here is the Haiku.

This ends this part of the journey. Join me again soon as I carry on to the Granville Island Market. I'd love to know how you are enjoying the walk so far. Until we meet again, happy blogging!
