Edible Canada

D and I had gone for brunch on the weekend at Edible Canada previously and loved the food there so when we I took my mum to Granville Island, we decided to have a mid afternoon snack there.  I was super disappointed with the food and the only thing that was good was the fries.   The seafood in the  soup wasn't fresh and the salmon fish and chips was soggy.  My poor mum, she was looking forward to a good snack.  Anyone else had a bad experience there or did I just go on an off day?

Harmony Arts Fest 2012 - Feastro & Dunn's

Harmony Arts Festival is back again running from Aug 3 - Aug 12.  We went last year and thouroughly enjoyed ourselves so this year we went to check it out again.  They have 2 stages with live music and lots of talented jewllery designers and artists showing their work.  I'm also happy to say that they have added more food vendors this year so that there is a bit more variety :)  Most of the vendors were the same as last year but they added a couple, the ones that caught my attention were Feastro, Faux Real and Holy Crepe.

Butchart Gardens - Victoria

If you're based in Vancouver, Butchart Gardens can be a day trip to Victoria or if you'd like you can spend a day or 2 longer to wander around Victoria.

For my mum and I, we took off to Tsawwassen and caught the 11am ferry to Swartz Bay.  Check BC Ferries for more details.  Not much line up as it was a weekday :)  Mum usuallly gets seasick but the ferry was so stable she didn't need the seasick pills.  The ferry ride over is quite picturesques and on a nice sunny day, it's nice to sit out on the deck.  Sometimes you can even catch a talk about the marine life along the BC coast out on the deck.

Mum's very excited about Butchart Gardens, it's her 2nd time here and we spent 4 1/2 hours walking through.  It was nice and leisurely and you really get to drink in all that beauty.  Check out the photos.

VanDusen Gardens - Spring

I actually think VanDusen Garden in Vancouver rivals Butchart Gardens and you don't have to take that expensive ferry ride over to Victoria...but hey Butchart Gardens is definitely a sight to behold especially in full bloom.   What do you think?
