Lonsdale Quay

Two beautiful sunny Saturdays ago we took the Seabus over to Lonsdale Quay in North Vancouver.

Q Market

I haven’t been to Lonsdale Quay in years, which is sad because it’s only fifteen minutes away by Seabus.

Sometimes we get so caught up in the daily grind that we forget the small pleasures. Lonsdale Quay, the market and the Waterfront Park nearby makes for a nice afternoon getaway. I have a unique fondness for North Van, especially the Lower Lonsdale area. I lived in the neighbourhood when I first moved to Vancouver and it felt so much like a very long vacation. I especially liked taking the Seabus into the city; it made going to work in the morning extra special.

These days I just zip over the Lions Gate Bridge whenever I need to get into North Vancouver.

I’ve been meaning to get back out there and explore, reminisce and bask in that feeling of newness I used to feel.

Fruits at the Lonsdale Quay Market

We spent time at the market browsing the shops, picking up cute knick knacks and food items. It felt nice to play tourist for the afternoon, people were so nice (not that they aren’t ordinarily) and kept asking us where we were visiting from, It was so much fun we played along.

After a quick scrumptious lunch, we took our desserts to the Waterfront Park. We watched the kids play and enjoyed the view of the downtown skyline.
