The last week has had its ups and downs... literally! From the spectacular City of light Fireworks display, the buzz of colour at Granville island and not to forget Lynn Canyon where we watched helplessly as two youths climbed over the barricade and jumped into the dangerous Canyon. Fortunately they were not injured, however many have not been so lucky. Numerous teenagers have perished trying to attempting the 40ft jump however the risk and danger may also be part of the appeal.

For those a little less adventurous, Vancouver is full of many comparatively safe sports. Walking over the bridge to Granville Island  I watched two people standing each on a surf board tryling to paddle with a canoe oar...it looked like hard work! Granville Island itself was a busy hub of energy and I enjoyed some juicy chicken satay skewers from the market.
