Welcome to the Ladner Village Market, held every 2nd Sunday throughout the summer. People flock from miles around and we see lots of tourists here, too. Later on this summer we'll be having the annual antique car / quilt show along this same street. Stay tuned for photos of that.
The band welcomes everyone to the market. People can sit on park-style benches or stand to listen. Children dance to the beat.
This is just outside one of my favourite shops. Today I got a bargain! I bought a $110 Jones New York dressy top for just $25!!!
It was a beautiful day, hot, but with a good strong breeze to cool you off. You can just see the trees blowing a bit.
There is lots to look at/buy from all sorts of artisans - jewelry, photography, paintings, garden decorations, bronze sculptures...
fresh fruit, food and drink, home baking, jellies, jams...
flowers and plants...the lady in the apron is a friend who owns property on Westham Island where she and her husband have a nursery.
And of course there's the ever-popular original ice-cream truck!
Well, that's all I could get on one posting. Now I think I'll enjoy my shady patio and read the August issue of Oprah. Stay cool, everyone! Happy summer.

- I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.
