False Creek

A long walk along the Vancouver seawall and across the Cambie bridge today took us to False Creek, also the home of the Olympic Village. It’s been over two years since the Winter Olympics was held in Vancouver and now all the athletes have moved out it is growing into a community of families and young professionals, as well as trendy businesses such as Urban Fare, Tap and Barrel, and Terra Breads.
