Up the lake

Last night we grabbed some juicy steaks from the Chopping Block, which is also supplies Magpie's, my diner, with meat and cheese, a bottle of wine, some pate, some cheese, some crackers and we took off up the lake to our float cabin.

A float cabin you ask? Yup...here it is.






And this is what I saw this morning while sipping a hot cup of coffee.










But to really find out about life on a float cabin you must read this blog http://powellriverbooks.blogspot.com/ . Margy Lutz writes the blog and Wayne Lutz is the author of several books about life on British Columbia's West coast, here is his website, http://www.powellriverbooks.com/.

Margy and Wayne spend pretty much the best part of the year at their float cabin, they even have a floating garden, check this out http://powellriverbooks.blogspot.com/2009/06/how-does-your-garden-grow.html.

We bought our cabin via Margy's blog - we met and stayed in touch since then. They always take a look at our cabin to ensure all is ok as they head up/down the lake. I don't think they really know how much Art and I appreciate it. Thanks Margy and Wayne.

Margaret - Thanks for the sweet comments. We feel a strong connection to your cabin and enjoy taking a look in on things for our friends up the lake. Besides, we to right by quite a few times most weeks. I am so glad you and Art got up to spend some time after all the hard work opening Magpie's. And I know you enjoyed those steaks. Thanks to your suggestion we got some at 2 for 1 and had two wonderful meals our last week before leaving for the States. Aren't those view worth a million? - Margy
