Yesterday afternoon I took a ferry across to Granville Island, a thriving public market, 100s of vendors, great food, fruit, nuts, wine, oysters, crabs, smoked salmon, craft beers, art, music, restaurants,food stalls, outdoor wear, kayaks -- crowded, lots of tourists, yes, but vital and fun nonetheless. Going back with grown-up camera today.
I had dinner last night with my friend Vic Marks at his farm a half hour south of V. Turns out he's a car nut: 1939 Studebaker pickup truck, possibly the most beautiful p/up truck I've ever seen. A sleek low black Jaguar. A purple 1930s Cord (810/812), forchrissake's -- immaculate, I couldn't believe I was seeing a Cord in person. Will put up pics when I get chance -- you car nuts are gonna love these vehicles.
PLUS let's hear it for Ploom stealth!
