Travelling from Toronto to Hong Kong on my annual migration to Asia 🙂 allowed for a stopover in Vancouver for a short family visit. The city was experiencing an extended summer with some great weather. With my parents as tour guides, I paid a visit to North Vancouver across the Burrard Inlet.
Lower Lonsdale is a historic waterfront district on the North Shore and is easily reached by public transport via the SeaBus passenger ferry. This tourist destination contains a public market, the Lonsdale Quay Market, similar to the popular downtown Granville Market but on a smaller scale, and not as crowded. Here also are numerous food retailers, restaurants, and specialty shops.
