Nina alerted me the other day that a quaint little book store in the Kitsilano area of Vancouver has decided to carry “Water is…. “. I was meeting my friend Jackie visiting from Luxembourg that evening for dinner and she was staying in the area so I decided that I would have to check out the book store, Banyan Books and Sound, as I had heard great things about it.
We had hoped to grab some fish and chips at East Spanish Banks and walk along the water but that hope was dashed when we discovered that they had closed four days early as they had run out of supplies. I suspect it was the run of warm sunny fall weather and increased demand that caused the supplies to run out earlier than they expected. We still strolled along the beach and enjoyed the setting sun.
We were on the hunt for dinner but headed to Banyen Books and Sound first. It truly was a wonderful place to be able to look at a book, relax and spend time to really know that a book will be just what you expect. Of course I was on the hunt for “Water” and there it was on the shelf, a chair right there to sit and enjoy a chapter. Jackie also enjoyed perusing the book; unfortunately limited by space in her travel bags it was left on the shelf for now.
Our stomachs were rumbling as it was almost 7:30. Instead of fish and chips we settled for Greek and a wonderful pie for desert. Nina had told me to try the pies from Aphrodite’s Organic Pie Shop and the pecan pie was a wonderful way to finish off the evening and my visit with Jackie. This shop is across the street from Banyen Books so when your stomach rumbles while checking out the books, relief is moments away.
