At the Shipyards Friday night market

This Friday, the Shipyards Friday night market wasn’t as busy as usual, and probably because of the rain we had in the day, but by the evening the shore dried up pretty nicely and the sun came out.

I love walking down tot he market…it’s only nine city blocks from me…but the downhill is fine; it’s the uphill return which I try not to think about…lol.

I live in a wonderful neighbourhood with a great mix of houses and duplexes, and just a little below me are apartments and townhouses, and just below that, at the shipyards, are stores, hotels, businesses, restaurants, and large skyscrapers. And I get to walk thru all of it to get down to the ocean. On Friday nights there is a market set up with at least fifty food trucks, artisan stalls, farmer’s stalls, and children’s activities. There is always a live band and a sectioned off “beer garden” (alcohol isn’t allowed in outdoor public spaces in BC).

I stay for as long as I like…when Robbie is with me we end up staying way into the night…and then I walk back home.
